Tapeworms entre sur Cranes Records -en collaboration avec Howlin Banana Records (FR) et Testcard Records (JAP)- avec un premier album monumental, Funtastic. Comme le nom l'indique, "il se passe beaucoup de choses au cours de ces trente minutes, mais le trio ne nous perd jamais : les associations fonctionnent, aussi farfelues soient-elles." - Section 26

Le groupe décrit cet album ainsi :

"It’s in the heart of 2018’s summer, settled the youth cultural center of their hometown, that Margot, Théo and Eliott start composing what will become Funtastic.Soon the atmosphere surrounding them modeled a made-to-measure environment full of vivid colors and all kind gym mats. A welcome return to roots which gave them confidence to emerge from the usual bass, guitar, drum pattern. Tinged by summer softness, the first songs of this session will soon confront new life experiences. 

Relatives loss and personal issues led to major changes for the band members. It all resulted in a simple need : look to the future. Funtastic name symbolize their search for a new horizon charged with nostalgia, bittersweet recklessness and positivity. 

In 33 minutes, Funtastic brings noisy pop songs into electronic, rock songs into experimental playgrounds and offers synth pop lullabies breaks. On this album, Tapeworms convey forgotten self promises, inner demons, face challenges and bet on luminous outcomes."
