Tacocat Share New Single The Joke Of Life

Wednesday, 17 April 2019 Written by Helen Payne

Tacocat have released a new single.

After February’s Grains Of Salt, The Joke Of Life is a pleasant guitar-led track that takes Tacocat’s earlier punk sounds in a more pop-based direction. The latest from the Seattle band’s upcoming fourth album, in true Tacocat style it mingles their political critiques with a vibrant and warm energy.

Vocalist Emily Nokes said of reaching their pop potential:

“We can examine some hard stuff, make fun of some evil stuff, feel some soft feelings, feel some rage feelings, feel some bitter-ass feelings, sift through memories, feel wavy-existential, and still go get a banana daiquiri at the end.”

The Joke Of Life’s accompanying video sees footage of the band dancing wildly, playing with goats, and generally having a bit of fun.

‘This Mess Is A Place’ is due on May 3 via Sub Pop, which they’ll support with a US tour throughout May and June.
