Video of the day: Tanya Tagaq

Ahead of a London live date next month, Inuit throat-singer Tanya Tagaq has unveiled a stunning new video for raw, shamanistic track ‘Uja’.

Taken from her Polaris-prize winning record ‘Animism’, which came out earlier this year in Europe, this menacing and feral display of vocal acrobatics is perfectly accompanied by the disturbing video directed by Manitoba’s Procter Bros.

The video presents the same stark instabilities, frailties, dangers and violence as evoked by the song . From a frenetic concrete cityscape, menacing, militaristic and dystopian, to the bloody and brutal beauty of nature, the video for ‘Uja’ is as skittish and unsettling as it is potent.

Watch ‘Uja’ here:
