Bio

Fueled by vintage synthesizers & drum machines, Duck Duck Punch brings the analog spirit into the modern electronic genre. Influenced by pioneering synth acts and contemporary interpretations—Duck Duck Punch falls somewhere amongst the likes of Depeche Mode, Gary Numan, Ladytron, Goldfrapp, and Fischerspooner.

The duo, Bryan Rudell & Trent Waterman, met as design students at the University of Minnesota, Duluth. Formed in the summer of 2009, Duck Duck Punch broke the traditional genre barrier of the Minnesotan Iron Range—home to Bob Dylan, Trampled by Turtles, and Charlier Parr; folk capital, USA. With a handful of songs in their arsenal, they inhabited Minneapolis a year later where they’d produce their debut album, Human Chemistry.

Exploring collisions between the collective consciousness and the individual psyche, Human Chemistry became a cynical document of the human condition. Carried by themes of trauma, desire, disease, and escapism. Duck Duck Punch added a little grit to the classic, dance-driven synthpop formula.

Duck Duck Punch is excited to share their first full-length release with their Minneapolis CD release show at famed 7th Street Entry with Breakfast Anytime & The Trends (Jan 15th), then revisiting their Duluth roots at Red Star (Jan 25th).
