Ducky Neptune – “Mary”


Nashville-based band Ducky Neptune unveil a psych-friendly blend of surf and soul on new track “Mary,” recorded at at FAME Studios. Playful organs and guitar twangs drive into a haunting vocal liftoff past the first minute turn, with the “won’t you come round?” enticement thereafter stirring.

The second half impresses in its expansion, with the piano-leading “go ’round,” hypnotics building into a charismatic guitar lead that satiates into the conclusion. A suave, throwback rock allure permeates throughout in the soulful organ-based vibrancy, tender guitar work, and calming vocal composure.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of March 2023’ Spotify playlist.
