The members of Mallards describe their sound as “original Duluth garagicana.” Though “garagicana” is not a real word, it seems accurate. The longer way of describing it would be to note the band blends elements of Americana, roots rock, blues, pop rock, country and grunge into one Minnesota music unit. Simon Thill takes on the guitar and vocals of the group, with Andrew Lipke on lead guitar, Alex Chocholousek on bass and Ryan Nelson on drums. A self-titled debut EP was released in December.
