ANTI- Records is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Mamba, the sophomore album from South Africa-bred artist Prism Tats. Due out March 2, Mamba offers a moody but melody-driven strain of psych-inflected post-punk.
Recorded with producer Chris Woodhouse (Thee Oh Sees, Ty Segall), Mamba explores themes of self-inflicted isolation, working-class hopelessness, and the emotional damage of technology addiction. “Most of these new songs came from taking in what’s going on in the world today, and being afraid of the future we’re headed toward,” notes Garett van der Spek, the L.A.-based singer/songwriter behind Prism Tats.
Today, Prism Tats shares the video for “Daggers,” one of the more menacing tracks featured on Mamba. Directed by Jonny Look (Cass McCombs, Grizzly Bear), “Daggers” delivers its brilliantly twisted humor in grainy home-video form.
