Tagaq’s single Teeth Agape is taken from her newest album Tongues. The music video for Teeth Agape was created as an animated video by David Seitz. The video shows animated wolves that emulate Tagaq as a protective mother. The animation shows off the emotion in Tagaq’s voice to an intense beat which truly lays down the tone of the song.
