Polaris Prize winner and Inuit punk vocalist Tanya Tagaq is set to release her new album Retribution on 18th November. The follow up to 2014’s Animism is set to be more musically aggressive, and also more political, capturing the essence of a violent world on the verge of destruction. It also promises to link the lack of respect for women’s rights with a lack of respect for the planet and Indigenous rights.
After sharing the single ‘Centre,’ featuring the rapper Shad, she’s now unveiled the title track of the album. Piercing violins accompany Tagaq on the track as she moves between yelping and grunting lyrics that deftly sum up the themes of the album as a whole. It’s a call to arms against the world’s ills. Listen below.
Tagaq will also be playing a few shows in the UK in January as part of a wider European tour. Details below.
23rd January – Howard Assembly Rooms, Leeds
24th January – Café Oto, London
26th January – Corsica Studios, London
