Put 'Em Up To The Sky As Moon Taxi Gets Us "Two High"
Commit this group’s name to memory, y’all, as Nashville‘s Moon Taxi have built quite the reputation since buzzing during Bonnaroo. Now, the indie-progressive-poppy-yet-all-the-way-funky band has brought their instrumental execution to us here at Okayplayer with the high-to-the-sky cut, “Two High”.
The five-piece band, led by vocalist + guitarist Trevor Terndrup (aka Trevor Turnt-Up), Spencer Thomson (lead guitarist), Wes Bailey (keyboardist), Tommy Putnam (bassist) and Tyler Ritter (drummer), has released the new single to much applause. Produced by Spencer Thomson, “Two High” made its debut on Sirius XM‘s “Jam On,” and is now available on streaming via Relix.com.
“Two High,” which you can listen to below, is “a song about hope,” according to Trevor Terndrup. “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.” Amen, brother. If you don’t feel the vibes of peace and tranquility while your feet are bouncing up and down, then you might just be a MAGA supporter.
Either way, Moon Taxi is definitely a band on the rise, and appearances on late night TV are just the doorway they need to gain national and international acceptance from the masses. With their 2017 tour getting ready to kick off, we highly suggest you to press play on this cut, leave it on repeat and cop a ticket for when they come to your town this summer.
