Tanya Tagaq - Teeth Agape
From Ikaluktutiak - Cambridge Bay, Nunavut, Tanya Tagaq is an internationally celebrated artist, and charismatic performer, as well as a composer and bestselling author. She has won various awards such as the Polaris Music Prize and has received multiple honorary doctorates.
Tagaq’s single Teeth Agape is taken from her newest album Tongues. The music video for Teeth Agape was created as an animated video by David Seitz. The video shows animated wolves that emulate Tagaq as a protective mother. The animation shows off the emotion in Tagaq’s voice to an intense beat which truly lays down the tone of the song.
Tongues was released in January 2022 on Six Shooter Records.
