& Chicago does it again!

I really don't know how it took me so long to take a good listen to the next featured band on this blog, but luckily I finally have. I've heard AM Taxi's name a lot lately, with the band playing Warped Tour for the whole thing this summer and opening for a band that's a good friend of mine in Treaty of Paris. It may also be because the chicago scene has had so much success over these last few years and has become a powerhouse, but AM Taxi definitely are a stand out band.

Only a week or so ago, they released their first official music video for "The Mistake", and along with being a great music video with an awesome symbolic message and great footage of the band in action, I really fell in love with the lyrics and they are already stuck in my head. The main line of the chorus reads "I will be your razor, baby. I will be the pill, I'll be the ambulance that never comes, the antidote that you spill" and instantly hits a part of your heart and has some obvious symbolism to it. It's like the theory from Music&Lyrics, you either love the melody or love the lyrics and I'm definitely a lyrics kind of girl so these guys are in like flint with me.

Check out more of their music on myspace and add them to their list of must-sees on Warped tour. It will be worth it, promise!

  1. It's too bad you hadn't picked up on AM Taxi sooner. Their stuff is superior, it's global! These guys are all experienced with the scene. Their music is based from a collection of styles over a number of decades. As their song writer Krier is not only a musician he is this generation's poet. He lives the lyrics. The best news is we will see and hear much more from AM Taxi!
