The Tacks
s/t (pink vinyl)

Label: Rockstar Records

Released: Oct. 28, 2022

The Tacks‘ self-titled album immediately shines with the band‘s inherent wonderful sound of melancholic joy in darkness in general. The mix of goth, dark wave, post punk and the best of 80s college radio can confidently be subsumed under dark punk - if you need something like pigeonholes for it. Glassy guitars, an enchanting voice, bubbling basses and driving melodies to a catchy beat - that‘s The Tacks from Christchurch, NZ.

Mastered by Brian Feary at The Dogshit Factory
