Track Of The Day: Tacocat – ‘Grains Of Salt’

Following 2016’s Lost Time, Seattle’s pop-punksters Tacocat have now announced the release of their brand new album The Mess Is A Place, and we couldn’t be more excited.

Taken from the album, new single ‘Grains Of Salt’ flows with jangly, uptempo hooks and the trademark soaring, raw vocals of Emily Nokes, creating a vibrant message of empowerment. As Nokes exclaims “Don’t forget to remember who the fuck you are”, a wonderful sense of catharsis oozes from the bands’s sparkling musicality, the track’s bright energy matching the colourful drag performers of the video. Another infectiously uplifting feminist anthem from the Seattle group, leaving us longing to hear more from the new album.

Of the video for ‘Grains Of Salt’, Nokes expands:

The video is also super special! We were really lucky to get to work with some of our favorite Seattle performers and friends, not to mention an ace video team. Seattle is so talented it’s ridiculous. (Shoutout to the giant glasses of room-temp blue milk that somehow never spilled a drop!)”

This Mess Is A Place, the upcoming album from Tacocat, is out 3rd May via Sub Pop.
