(US) Today No Shame record label announced the release of Black Taxi’s new album and third LP ‘Electroshock Death Grip’. The album will be available on September 23 and is the Brooklyn-based band’s follow up to their ‘Chiaroscuro EP’.
Black Taxi’s music, and particularly this album, defies simple categorization. Their style has been dubbed “grit pop” and “dance punk” because that’s exactly what it sounds like and due to its refusal to think inside the box. In effect, Black Taxi create their own lane, musically, and they are inviting you along for the thrill ride.
With Electroshock Death Grip, think the “anything goes” ethos of The Talking Heads or even Jamiroquai dosed with a dash of Daft Punk-with-Pharrell Williams. It’s 10 tracks of both good time and feel good music that will have you tapping your toes and grooving in your chair. In fact, Electroshock Death Grip challenges you not to move in concert with its crazy catchy melodics and singalong choruses.
The first single will be “Final Days” and it will have its online premiere shortly.
‘ELECTROSHOCK DEATH GRIP’ TRACK LISTING:
