METZ’s new album Atlas Vending is out on October 9th via Sub Pop Records.
Canadian noise rock outfit METZ have shared the second single from their upcoming fourth album Atlas Vending. Titled ‘Hail Taxi’, the track takes the band’s signature abrasive sound and throws in a truly anthemic chorus for good measure. Check out the video above or stream it via Bandcamp below.
“‘Hail Taxi’ is about looking back. The lyrics deal with the idea of reconciling or coming to terms with who you were and who you’ve become,” shares frontman Alex Edkins. The stunning video, directed by A.F. Cortes, heightens these themes and expertly captures the same intensity as the alternately brutal verses and beguiling choruses of ‘Hail Taxi’. Of the video, Cortes says, “I wanted to tell a simple story that captures the song’s overarching theme. The idea of longing for the past creates many visual motifs and I wanted to create a piece that feels timeless and conveys a sense of isolation, highlighting that while we can hide our feelings, we can’t run from them.”
