RUBBER DUC REMAINS UNSINKABLE AS SA’S MOST POPULAR ACOUSTIC DANCE MUSIC (ADM) ACT – AND THEY HAVE THE CHART POWER TO PROVE IT
Since first releasing their debut single back in 2014, SA’s premier acoustic dance music (ADM) act, Rubber Duc, has proven their growing popularity and staying power time and time again – from their first release, Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That, which still sits on top of their streaming list internationally, to It’s Alright, which cemented the foursome as a household name in the country, right up to their release, Through The Night, which made it all the way to the top when it reached the #1 spot on radio giant Jacaranda FM’s charts towards the end of 2018, amongst also being a chart topper on a variety of other radio stations nationwide.
And since the release of their debut album (The Secret Sunrise) in 2016, one accolade after the other just seemed to pour in for the hitmakers, ranging from two SAMA Awards nominations, to receiving an honourable mention in the prestigious 2017 International Songwriting Competition (with over 16,000 entries from over 140 countries), as well as performing at every major music festival across the country – all this on top of making it to the top of the charts with Through The Night.
Although their style and genre is hard to define, their repertoire is uniquely diverse, appealing to South Africans across cultures, age, shape and size. RUBBER DUC believes that music provides a platform to bring people together, to change the world, even if just for a moment… In their own words: “When people sing your music back to you, whether it is one person or a thousand, the point is that the message has touched someone in one way or another.
They have certainly done that! Their music is uplifting, positive and appealing. Whether it’s a satirical take on life, like “AIN’T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THAT”, a touching love song like “FEET” or an anthem like “IT’S ALRIGHT”, their songs tend to stay with you. RUBBER DUC’S go-to director, the legendary Kyle White creates equally memorable videos. Have a look and listen on YouTube.
Over the years, Rubber Duc have had the honour of performing for several leading brands, local and global companies such as INVESTEC, BMW, DIMENSION DATA, ERNST & YOUNG, FAMOUS BRANDS, TSOGO SUN, SUN INTERNATIONAL, to name a few.
