Moon Taxi kicked off their fall tour last week and have their eyes set on the Fillmore halfway through the run on Saturday, September 30.
The Nashville-based quintet blends the quiet introspection and feel-good melodies of your favorite indie bands with a tenacious progressive rock and roll sound. Moon Taxi made an early name for themselves in the Southeast US, earning a constant buzz at festivals from Coachella to Bonnaroo.
Although they started out with a heavy jam-based influence, even winning a “Best New Jam” title from JamBase, the group has tightened up the scope of its sound significantly. They have released three albums, most recently 2015’s Daybreaker.
Earlier this summer, Moon Taxi released a new song from their forthcoming, as-of-yet untitled album. Check out the new track, called “Two High,” below.
Vocalist Trevor Terndrup explained to Relix that “Two High” is “a song about hope. Hope for understanding, hope for acceptance, and hope for our future. We were inspired by the simple and universal peace sign. It’s a gesture we would like to see more of.”
Joining Moon Taxi from September 26 in Arizona and through the end of the tour will be NYC’s YouTube busking sensation Too Many Zooz. Founded in 2013 by three former students of the Manhattan School of Music, they released their first full-length album last summer and collaborated with Beyoncé at the CMAs in November.
If you like what you saw (and more importantly, heard) when Moon Hooch came to the Bay Area in the spring, there’s a good chance that Too Many Zooz will tickle your fancy just the same. Make sure you arrive early and stick around for the main event.
