Tacocat’s New Full-Length ‘This Mess Is a Place’ Is Out Tomorrow. Now Watch The Music Video For “New World”

Seattle band Tacocat will release This Mess Is a Place, their new full-length album on LP/CD/Digital and Cassette tomorrow, Friday, May 3rd. The album is their first for Sub Pop, and heralds a more pop-driven and ebullient direction in their sound. Critics are calling it “as effervescent as ever” (Paste) and “the band’s most polished record to date” ( The Seattle Times). Today, NYLON premiered the band’s trippy music video for “New World” alongside an interview with the band’s lead singer Emily Nokes. This visual was made by director Sean Downey.
