Tacocat, whose “Dana Katherine Scully” and “I Hate the Weekend” videos have recently been featured in our newsletters, just can’t stop putting creative energy out into the world. The colorful Seattle-based feminist punkers are currently on tour in Europe, but Stateside fans can still get down to their new video, for “Talk,” which is available via Upset Magazine. According to bandmember Emily Nokes, the song is “one of the most different songs that we’ve ever made… I live in an apartment building where a lot of our friends live, and I’ve had really great experiences where everybody is just talking and talking and talking to each other and not on their phones.” Watch the glow-in-the-dark video here or below:
MTV recently featured Tacocat in an article that places the band’s current success into a context that explains not only their history but also the cultural influences that led them to become the band they are today. Find out how Tacocat turned “90s nostalgia into punk rock rebellion” here.
