Tanya Tagaq "Retribution" (video)
Published Nov 03, 2016Tanya Tagaq is currently gracing the cover of Exclaim!'s November issue, after dropping her latest full-length Retribution. Now, she's unveiled a video for the new record's title track.
The clip finds the Inuk throat singer in a warehouse alongside Greenlandic mask dancer Laakkuluk Williamson Bathory and a wolf, exploring the notion of "nature being forced into unnatural spaces."
"It's about how one cannot remove the essence of life and instinct out of our bodies, no matter how debilitated this society becomes," Tagaq told Thump, where the video premiered.
You can see that idea get vividly translated onto the screen below.
Retribution is out now via Six Shooter Records.
