Ducks Ltd. have shared a new single, ‘Train Full of Gasoline’, which is lifted from their upcoming sophomore album Harm’s Way. The song, which follows previous entries ‘Hollowed Out’ and ‘The Main Thing’, features backing vocals from Ratboys’ Julia Steiner and Moontype’s Margaret McCarthy, as well as Ratboys’ Marcus Nuccio on drums. Check it out below.
“The jumping off point for this song was a friend telling me about the Lac Megantic rail disaster in Quebec,” vocalist Tom McGreevy said in a statement. “A 73 car train full of crude oil was left unattended and rolled down a hill before derailing and exploding in a town. I read about it a bunch, and to my understanding it was a scenario where a bunch of small errors built up and compounded each other, with the result being a catastrophe out of proportion with any of the individual failures that precipitated it. The song is about self destructive patterns. How if you try to ignore or minimize issues in your life they can manifest in places you don’t expect.”
