Duck Duck Punch is one of those bands that I have no recollection when and how I discovered them but am glad I did. Especially since I learned just this minute that one half of the duo is a fellow homosexual. Bryan Rudell said that the song "Degenerate Public," off the duo's album Human Chemistry, is "me talking about how ashamed I used to be about being gay — and how so many people try to keep it their 'dirty little secret.' It's addressing a social issue, but in a way that isn't shouting 'ACCEPT GAY PEOPLE[!]' Anybody could interpret the song in their own way." Nice. And his tunes, co-written and produced by the duo's other half Trent Waterman, are full of swirly synths and vintage drum machines. Check out "Mirage" below and grab a 4 song sampler from Human Chemistry in exchange for your email on their site.
