Get a preview of festival season when Moon Taxi parks at the Social Wednesday night


  • Joshua Wilkins Black
Nashville band Moon Taxi caught the country’s eye three years ago with the debut of their second album, Mountains Beaches Cities. Now the five-piece is taking its festival sound on tour again after the release of its third and most relatable album, Daybreaker, late last year. The band has finally found its sound, with songs that pick up on all the nuances of a live performance, from subtle finger movements to shallow breaths. It’s an immersive experience, one that surrounds the listener in swooning choruses and towering guitar riffs. The stadium-ready single, “Year Zero,” was made to sing along with, the perfect song to hear while swaying, eyes closed, in the middle of summer. If you can’t wait until festival season, now is the perfect time to catch this band before Bonnaroo comes around.
