- Midnight The Taboos 4:11
The Taboos are set to release their new single titled ‘Midnight’ this Friday (November 12th). With a full sound, particularly for a three piece, a lot is going on within the song in regards to the hook and harmonies. To the point stylistically, we get a song from a band that has that experience in their sound and a poignant heaviness in their execution of the music that we feel more than we hear.
About The Taboos
The Taboos are a three-piece contemporary Indie/Alternative Rock band based in Berkshire. Their sound is very diverse, varying from punchy anthem-esque choruses, to catchy and alluring melodic pop.
Officially formed in 2018, they have acquired great live experience after supporting artists such as Nick Grimshaw, Scouting for Girls and Toploader. Their driving and energetic performances earned them regular support slots at prestigious venues in London, such as O2 Academy Islington and Camden Assembly.
The band currently have 4 singles released, with plenty more up their sleeves. Their latest offering of ‘No Miracles’ marked a big leap forward for the band, being widely viewed as their strongest single to date, after its release back in 2019. The band has clocked over 30,000 Spotify streams on the track so far and received an abundance of support from bloggers and radio stations around the world.
The Taboos have since released their follow up single ‘Innovative Thinking’, on the 3rd July 2020. The track explores a new experimental realm for the band, whilst sitting very comfortably in line with its predecessors. ‘Innovative Thinking’ has a mixture of expressive layered vocal harmonies, resonating and relatable lyrics, an ocean of dynamic guitar tones and of course… Naughty. Slick. Beats. The track delves into the challenges of modern technologies and how humanity’s reliance on it allows it to control our existence.
’Innovative Thinking’ has received an overwhelming amount of support from fans, bloggers and radios. Most notably, after playing the track 3 weeks in a row on Hannah Fletcher’s BBC Introducing show, the track received Pick of the Week over at BBC Introducing in Lincolnshire. Frontman of The Taboos, Alex Martin, had a live interview with BBC presenter Melvyn Prior on his mid-morning show on 27th July 2020. Not only has the BBC supported the track, but it also received airplay on Charlie Ashcroft’s show on Amazing Radio.
The band’s upcoming single ‘Midnight’ sees the band leap forward once more, bending even more rules this time. A groove-based anthem that builds to an explosive crescendo proving another demonstration of the band’s creative abilities. This band is a creative force, with an ever-growing and maturing repertoire of unique, stylish hits. 2021 will see the band continue to excel with more releases on the horizon.
