GOLDEN DUCK ORCHESTRA is a Brazilian band formerly known as MegaRex. While the band’s core sound is rock, MegaRex also incorporates different styles such as Pop, Brazilian folk elements, electronic music and other surprising musical twists. The lyrics are humorous and the same upbeat and tongue-in-cheek approach is present in their live performance.
MegaRex has achieved great success in the Brazilian market with their first (self-entitled) CD. This album was recorded in Portuguese and to promote it the band played to large audiences all over Brazil.
Besides having competed in the largest and most acclaimed songwriting contests in Brazil, with performances broadcast to all country, Megarex was praised by critics and highly regarded in the media with their song “Misturada”.
Megarex’s music videos and songs were, altogether, downloaded and viewed by more than 200.000 fans in less than one year, a very substantial number for the Brazilian independent music market.
With only a demo of 4 songs MegaRex was chosen (among more than 10.000 entries) to play in London in Oct 2009 at the British Music Week, where the band took 3rd place!
In March 2010 the band played at South by Southwest (Austin, TX), one of the most important music festivals of the world, followed by a small East Coast tour featuring Boston and NYC (at the CMJ Festival).
After a five year hiatus, the band (now named GOLDEN DUCK ORCHESTRA) is now releasing their new album, and two music videos are coming soon.
