Listen: Peking Duk - Say My Name feat. Benjamin Joseph
Peking Duk go stomping rock on their new single.
After establishing themselves as probably Australia's biggest dance music export in 2014 off the back of High feat. Nicole Millar and its follow-up Take Me Over feat. Safia, Peking Duk have entered the fray of 2015 with something of a departure in Say My Name feat. Benjamin Joseph. It almost sounds like something The White Stripes might have belted out a few years ago, heavy on the guitars, with a stomping psych-blues-rock beat. It's pretty cool to see them getting outside of the sandbox that made them one of the country's most-played acts in 2014, although the sing-along nature of Say My Name would suggest this could be all over your airwaves in a very similar fashion this year. Safia singer Ben Woolner-Kirkham, under the guise of Benjamin Joseph, again provides the vocal backbone, and it's hard not to see this one getting a rinsing for the remainder of the year and beyond. It might not have the hands-in-air, 'my pingers are kicking in' euphoria of their past efforts, but it's a different kind of huge, and that's pretty cool.
