Yay, you’re back! Welcome to BTRtoday’s Discovery Corner podcast brought to you by, Levi’s.

Tacocat is a Seattle based band perfect for your summer playlist–their surfy, yet kickass vibes will have you ready to take on anything that heatwave (or crimson wave) brings your way!

Emily Nokes (vocals), Bree McKenna (bass), Eric Randall (guitar), and Lelah Maupin (drums) make a perfect combination of punk rock, surf pop, feminism, and sarcasm! Take for example, their song “Crimson Wave” it’s all about the woes of going through your period. If you’re a woman, you know, it sucks.

The line, “all I want to do is cry; ask mother nature ‘why? why? why?'” helps us ladies find a way to laugh through the pain of shedding our uterus lining. The amusing line, “they’re communist in the summer house,” also adds that feminist kick to get rid of the taboo of menstruation.

During their live shows, they sometimes also have their friend join them on stage in full crab costume. It makes the whole experience fun, funny, exciting, and, of course, music to your ears!

You gotta love ’em. They’re fun, colorful, and have lots of pictures of cats–and if the Internet has taught us anything, it’s that the world is crazy about cats.

So follow them on all their social media pages and make sure to catch where they’re headed next to see them live!
