"Tokay" is a type of gecko in SouthEast Asia, and young lovers wish on the tokay gecko's cries late at night. Similar to the western game of picking petals off of a flower to the chant of "he loves me, he loves me not", lovelorn dreamers count the number of gecko calls and alternate their fortune between "single" and "married", the predicted romantic status of the object of their affection.
The video features footage from classic Betty Boop cartoons in a unique and bizarre mashup!
"Tokay" is now available as a digital maxi-single featuring two new songs, "Ghost Voice (Yukicito Remix)" and "Old Torn Clothes" (unreleased), and a download of the music video.
THE DEEPEST LAKE is the latest full length album from Los Angeles based Dengue Fever, a danceable, delightfully mutated mix of American surf, garage-rock psychedelia and the emotive, snaky crooning of Khmer folk music.
