Alternative & Indie - Released July 26, 2019 | Polydor Records

Kaiser Chiefs are out with a seventh studio album. Stay Together (2016) symbolized a drastic stylistic change for Ricky Wilson’s band, veering towards a trendy electro-pop formula. Duck goes the opposite way, perhaps in a nod to their early-2000s heyday. People Know How To Love One Another opens the album with an energetic chorus, powered by a horn section and layered synths. The super-positive message isn’t necessarily reflected in the rest of the album: although the music remains upbeat and catchy, Wilson discusses dating websites on Target Market’s yacht-rock groove, and political apathy with Don’t Just Stand There, Do Something. Several mentions of alcoholism and the musician lifestyle also pepper the record. The Kaiser Chiefs really shine when they stick to rock formulas, such as their first albums Employment (2005) and Yours Truly, Angry Mob (2007); it’s also the case on Duck. We’re excited to see their return to form with catchy songs that will no doubt find their home in stadiums and on the airwaves.
