Best of NYC Submissions, ALT ROCK category: Black Taxi

Best of NYC Submissions, ALT ROCK category: Black Taxi

Black Taxi gained the most votes for the Alternative Rock category amongst the NYC based artists that submitted to be considered for our Best of NYC Emerging Artists 2010 Poll. They will therefore access the next stage of our poll.

Listening to their music, we gather traces of bands as diverse as The Clash and Daft Punk - probably because of the band member’s diverse histories (they are the sons of rail workers, Olympians, Mennonites and sheep farmers). The final product is thick with tribal beats colliding with bold melodies, held together by catchy backing vocals. Our favorite songs are “Do What You Gotta Do” and “Shoeshine” - check them out live, they have a great show! - Leah Tribett
