Seattle’s TacocaT is spelled the same backwards and forwards. The four-piece punk band has been putting out upbeat music with a sense of humor since 2008, but they’ve topped themselves with their new music video for “Crimson Wave.” Invoking a pivotal line from Clueless, “Crimson Wave” is about exactly what it sounds like. The video is a fun surf throwback, featuring green screen waves, giant crabs, mermaids and plenty of inventive euphemisms (I think my favorite is “There are communists/In the summer house.”) It’s another great addition to any period playlist.
Tacocat’s new full-length NVM comes out February 25th on Hardly Art. Watch the video above or stream the song below.
