We’re getting excitingly close to the release of Retribution, Tanya Tagaq‘s hugely anticipated new album. Last week she offered the third single off it, the tremendous and compelling title track ‘Retribution’. Tagaq is now pairing the track with a video directed by Brian Johnson. Fellow Inuk performance artist Laakkuluk Williamson Bathory, also featured in the video, described the effort:
“For me, the ‘Retribution’ video is an exploration of the eccentric, the stomach lining of reality. It’s about the cross-pollination of Tanya’s voice and uaajeerneq—my mask work, a denial of the linear progression of past, present and future, a reminder that the earth’s strength is a part of our culture. It’s about feminism and Inuit women.”
Watch the video below and watch out for the release of Retribution on November 18th Six Shooter.
