Nashville-based funk band The Aquaducks are premiering a brand new groovy single today entitled “Feels Like”. “Feels like what?” you might ask. Well, as guitarist Zach Sheffler says, “‘Feels Like’ is the perfect song to put on in your car, roll your windows down, and cruise.” Featuring Tre Houston on the second verse, “Feels Like” combines the hip hop element with funk/jazz in a style that derives rhythmic elements from Lettuce, and The Motet, while featuring instrumental layering reminiscent of the early works of Dr. Dre. Lead vocalist and keyboardist Cavanaugh Mims elaborates, “We had been listening to a lot of west coast hip hop around the time we wrote the song. It felt right to bring in Tre to rap the second verse, and he totally nailed the vibe that we had in mind.”
To celebrate the brand new single’s release, the Aquaducks will be performing at the legendary Exit/Inn in Nashville on October 20th alongside Ghost Note, Dynamo, and the Jonathan Scales Fourchestra. “Feels Like” is the third and final single The Aquaducks are releasing before recording their next EP at Southern Ground Studios in Nashville, TN with a release date set for early 2019. But until then, enjoy the exclusive premiere of “Feels Like” available tomorrow October 20th across all digital platforms.

Nashville’s favorite duck-themed funk band, The Aquaducks
, is premiering a brand new tune, and it’s unlike anything they’ve released before. Entitled “Groove or Move”, the new single is designed to get you to do just that. Keyboardist and lead vocalist Cavanaugh Mims tells us, “‘Groove or Move’ is a reaction to those shows where everyone’s feet seem to be glued to the floor, arms are folded, and heads are bobbing. Although we appreciate attentive listeners, sometimes we just want people to get on up and groove with us!”
