Wollongong-based surf-rock artist Duckboi has unveiled the visual for his latest single, Going To The Beach.
Filmed across both Warilla Beach and Killalea Beach on the South Coast of NSW, the video sees Duckboi as a typical beach grommit, taking a psychedelic surf trip, as a confused beachgoer looks on. Partnering flawlessly with the DIY and lo-fi aesthetics of the track, the clip is an amusing rollercoaster, taking inspiration from the likes The Chats and Hockey Dad.
Speaking of the visual Duckboi shares: “We used both hi-fi equipment and camcorders, really wanted to convey a few different feelings from filmmakers such as Wes Anderson, whilst remaining in a DIY, lo-fi, kinda of ‘dodgy and not well done’ aesthetic. Also, can’t see it in the video but I cut my foot open when sprinting into the ocean after falling off surfboard. We all burnt very heavily on that day. Blood sweat but no tears.”
The musical project of Jack Lincoln (formally Ducks), the Going To The Beach was produced by Lincoln and fellow musician Zac Olsen. The dynamic track finds itself in a constant state of flux, not adhering to traditional structures whilst continuing to morph through sonic experimentation. Building up to a striking key change, the song is complete with Lincoln's distorted lead vocals atop his quirky, lo-fo production.
