Tacocat Builds a Bridge to Hawaii in Their Newest Music Video

by Mariana Garces


Our favorite psychedelic bubblegum feminist pop punk band out of Seattle, Tacocat, is back with another amazing music video for their new song “Bridge to Hawaii.” You might remember them from their hilarious video for “Crimson Wave” (a pop punk surf rock anthem for periods) that was complete with some bodacious green screen surfing and dancing human crabs.

“Bridge to Hawaii” is another hit off the band’s second album NVM, released on Hardly Art, which came out earlier this year. The band doesn’t take themselves very serious, choosing instead to write songs about things they love and things they hate with equal enthusiasm, biting wit and party-worthy beats.

If you’ve ever lived in a place like Seattle or suffered from SADD (anybody from upstate New York knows what I’m talking about), you’ll understand the sentiment in this new music video: to GTFO of town and find some sun and sand ASAP. And a colorful drink with an umbrella wouldn’t hurt… Good thing Tacocat drummer Lelah has her trusty green Geo Tracker to get the gang together for a makeshift stay-cation celebration. 

Once you have a fruity drink in your hand, check out the band’s paper doll animated video for “Hey Girl” that calls out nasty catcallers: “who do you think you are?/yelling at me from you car.” This song shows you just how badass the band can be when they want to touch on something more serious. If this is the kind of great music Tacocat is going to keep putting out, BUST is 100% down to party with them all the way from Seattle to Hawaii.
