"BLACK TAXI is one of NYC’s most prominent live acts, smashing an anything-goes punk ethos together with pop sensibilities, unparalleled energy, and brilliant songwriting. The result is a raucous stage show, heavy on harmonies, spitfire guitar licks, body paint, and all manner of instrumentation. Their style has been described varyingly as “grit-pop” or “dance punk”, and though their songs hint at the Talking Heads, Cake, and Daft Punk, they are driven by something entirely new and infectious.
BLACK TAXI songs can be heard on radio stations from Maine
to California, accompany hit TV shows, provide the soundtrack for film,
and hit the airwaves on commercial airlines.Their music video
“Shoeshine” found a success of it’s own as an Official Nominee for the
Webby Awards. Their most recent video “Hand” debuted on AOL Music and
2012′s “We Don’t Know Any Better” streamed on Spinner for a week
following the release.
BLACK TAXI’s first full-length offering Things of that Nature
received strong reviews in publications throughout the country. For
their second full-length album they returned to The Bunker Studio to
record with Aaron Nevezie, who has worked with Grammy nominated acts
like The Black Keys and Danger Mouse."
