First time I heard Ducks! I was not sure what it was exactly, though Cut & Run is compelling, it was also a bit mysterious, a bit awkward. One thing is certain , It sounded authentic above everything. Top Horse came to me as something impressive, what they called surreal dance floor odyssey. It’s the type of track I dream to listen to. Several different layers converging with a perfect groove yet innovative in all the senses, without reinventing the wheel. It’s like going through a sound adventure.
