“Nothing worth having comes without some kind of fight. Got to kick at the darkness 'til it bleeds daylight”
— Bruce Cockburn
BetterDucks at a glance
BetterDucks is an Indie Alt Rock band fronted by German born singer, guitarist and primary songwriter Dirk Externest. BetterDucks sound is - to curl up with on rainy days or to dance to in a sun-soaked summer.They fuse a driving rhythm section with vocal harmonies, melodic guitar work, with the deep richness of Dirk's lead vocals… think Wilco meets Knopfler with an occasional live encounter with The Drive By Truckers.
BetterDucks are unique with the pure warmth and honesty in their song-writing coupled with distinctive 70's vintage imagery and lack of pretense. Their music touches upon a range of emotions spanning both their upbeat to mellow songs, guiding listeners through their unique take on life's memorable moments.
