Colors of life with music is a Max and the Ducks concept.
Ducks are telling stories about life.
We make music with many musicians. It gives us opportunity to make different kind of songs. It´s always interesting to create something new and try to find a new sound and approach to tell a story. Inspiration is taken from fairytales, history, comics, pop art and life itself. Our own experiences. As an indie band with own label it gives us a chance to try our limits... Mostly we combine disco/rock and pop music.
Our message is: Rock Peace Love.
