Los Angeles-based electronic sweetheart DUCKY returns with her fourth release of 2019, “Addicted to Your Distance.” Debuting on Zeds Dead‘s Deadbeats imprint, the single follows her four-track EP, I Still Believe in Love, aligning thematically with the EP’s personal heartbreak backstory. “Addicted to Your Distance” is undeniably the next chapter in DUCKY’s growth, with lyricism centered on moving on from a past relationship and unforgiving bass packed into the production.
The track employs signature DUCKY elements, from her synthesized vocals to her eclectic fusion of dubstep and happy hardcore-inspired sound. Speedy vocal chops serve as buildup to a heavy drop that packages frenetic synths and punchy bass into a classic dubstep production. DUCKY’s angelic voice juxtaposes the thrashing sound design, ultimately delivering a melodic ensemble of bass-infused stylings. Echoing her self-molded genre of music, “Addicted to Your Distance” capitalizes on DUCKY’s ability to put a gaming-inspired twist on heavy-hitters.
