It never hurts to be a classically trained musician. And it shows with New York-based Black Taxi’s newest single “The Runner.” Through the heaps and heaps of electronic dance driven bands out there, the four have been able to use all of their musical knowledge to blend genres together effortlessly. And all the while they’re able to keep things catchy and dancey. Their new single contains sonic post-punk guitar lines sliding over fun to dance to beats, percussion, and keys.
The band’s new Chiaroscuro EP will be released on September 10, 2013 via No Shame.
In addition to the upcoming release they have a few tour dates:
09.04 Raleigh, NC @ The Pour House
09.05 Chattanooga, TN @ Rhythm & Brews*

09.07 Knoxville, TN @ Bijou Theatre*
