Toronto's Ducks Unlimited tap into that fey, effervescent side of the indie pop legacy.
Inspired by everything from Postcard Records to Flying Nun, there's kind of a rebellious anti-machismo in their music.
Supporting the likes of Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, The Goon Sax and Weyes Blood on tour, the quartet are currently prepping their new EP 'Get Bleak'.
Produced by Josh Korody it nails their thin, wiry sound while adding some warm effects to the band's lucid songwriting.
We're able to share the clip for new song 'Gleaming Spires' and it's a literal walk around Toronto, exploring some of the city's older areas.
Imagine an indie pop flaneur that recalls elements of C86 or Sarah Records, with a poetic touch in the songwriting.
Tune in now.
