Recorded remotely during lockdown in their homes, “Tarantino” is Moist’s first new release since their 2014 album, Glory Under Dangerous Skies. The song, which was assembled and mixed by guitarist Mark Makoway, tells a story of meaningless excess and was sparked from a Quentin Tarantino binge that singer, David Usher, had during the first lockdown.
“The song came out of a dream sparked by those images where we have lost all sense of ourselves – where there are no limits on our consumption and all we want is more.”
The accompanying visual is adapted from the National Film Board of Canada short, Caterpillarplasty, and is a grotesque sci-fi satire that lifts plastic surgery and trans-species body dysmorphia to another level.
I’m Tara and I’m a graphic designer from Newfoundland. I am very fortunate to live in a city where there is a ton of amazing musicians. I’ve grown very fond of the local music scene in St. John’s and some of my favorite bands are ones I’ve met through going to local shows.
