Black Taxi

Brooklyn's Black Taxi are a conundrum, mostly because they very successfully mush various strains of ‘00s rock insularity into a single sound: They've copped OK Go's bounce, the cocksure swagger of early Strokes and Franz Ferdinand, and the synthesizer-drenched ‘80s revivalism of bands like the Killers. What's interesting is that the group's sound incorporates these elements so seamlessly that they effectively squash the need to ever revisit their forebearers. What's problematic is that these qualities may make it difficult for you to enjoy Black Taxi on any level, depending on what side of the legal drinking age you're on.
