New Video: Taffy | Murkiii.

Tokyo quartet Taffy have created a thoroughly buoyant, utterly effervescent album with their latest full-length, Nyctophilia—a name which refers to love of night, a passion we and, we suspect, many of our readers can identify with. Here’s the new video for “Murkiii”, the record’s penultimate track. Plot summary: boy abducts girl in strange environs. Girl kills boy. Girl and boy kiss lots and lots while having big fun in Vegas, with occasional stabs of the erstwhile murder weapon. Extreme cuteness with bondage subtext.

Nyctophilia is available digitally from Amazon US and on vinyl from the UK’s Club AC30 label. Upcoming Japan and UK tour dates below.
