Metz are back with a new single called ‘Hail Taxi’, taken from their recently announced new album Atlas Vending. The Toronto trio’s latest arrives with an accompanying black-and-white video directed by A.F. Cortés. Watch it below.
“‘Hail Taxi’ is about looking back,” frontman Alex Edkins said in a press release. “The lyrics deal with the idea of reconciling or coming to terms with who you were and who you’ve become.”
Speaking about the inspiration for the video, Cortés said: “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.”
Atlas Vending comes out October 9 via Sub Pop. Previously, the band shared the lead single from the album, ‘A Boat to Drown In’, which we named one of our favourite songs that week.
