The video, directed by Nicholas Muecke, is off Tkay’s new EP Last Year Was Weird, Vol. 2, which is out now on 4AD.  Tkay is a tour de force on the eight songs with her mastery of sonic versatility taking the center stage.  The project earned widespread international acclaim and major features including Pitchfork Rising and British Vogue profiles, and an ARIA nomination.
