Indie Duo Ducks Ltd. Release Charming New Single “When You’re Outside”

From the same sessions of their acclaimed album 'Harm's Way'

Ducks Ltd. have released a charming new single “When You’re Outside,” produced by Dave Vettriano (Dehd, Deeper, Lala Lala), out now via Carpark Records. Recorded during the same sessions as their acclaimed recent album Harm’s Way, the song is anchored by a soaring chorus that sees singer/lyricist Tom McGreevy backed by harmonies from Julia Steiner (Ratboys) and Margaret McCarthy (Moontype).

This was one we wrote pretty early in the process for Harm’s Way, which was a period when a lot of country-leaning ideas were working their way into our arrangements. I’d demoed the harmonies in the chorus (badly), and when we were working on backing vocals with Julia and Margaret they immediately understood what we were trying to do and really elevated it,” he explains. “The song didn’t end up quite fitting in the sequence for the album, but it does a couple things we’ve never done before in a Ducks song so I’m glad we’re finding a way to put it out. It’s about trying to support someone who is making that difficult to do. Unconditional love in a sense. Or at least love with limited conditions.

Ducks Ltd. are a Toronto band featuring Australian lead guitarist Evan Lewis and U.K-born, U.S.-raised singer, bassist, and rhythm guitarist Tom McGreevy. As Ducks Ltd., the two thrive on skirting the edges of buoyant jangle pop and driving power pop. Their latest album, Harm’s Way, contains anxious songs that McGreevy explains are “about struggling. About watching people I care for suffer, and trying to figure out how to be there for them. And about the strain of living in the world when it feels like it’s ready to collapse.”

Ducks Ltd. begin their European and UK tour this Month, first hitting the UK shores.
