Duck Sauce- Barbra Streisand
October 12, 2010
The song, Barbra Streisand, has become an current online sensation by the up-and-coming duo, Duck Sauce.
Comprised of producer, DJ Armand Van Helden and A-Track (who commonly works with Kanye West), Duck Sauce has recently released their first single- and has managed to wrangle up an all-star cast of DJs and artists for their brightly colored music video.
The song itself throws steady beats of house and hip-hop music to underlay the simple, yet danceable beat. Then, add the vocals- which are merely a few “ooo’s” sung in a ranging melody, and place it on top of the original beat. What you get is a extremely catchy dance tune that sounds a little like disco, a little like techno, and a lot like fun. Though the song on its own may seem somewhat repetitive, its their music video that will make you remember them.
The official video for Barbra Streisand features musical stars such a Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Santigold, and Ezra Koenig from Vampire Weekend. Not only bombarded with images from artists, the video takes you on a wild tour of New York City that is shot from multiple angles of fast-paced, iconic imagery. Duck Sauce has managed to capture an excellent depiction of youth culture in a urban city.
Strange, yet exciting, Barbra Streisand, provides a sense of homogeneity toward mankind with the unifying images of various people, places, and things that simply make us want to party.
