“…infectious, thumping & glorious for starters…” – “a lively and entertaining pop dance debut that lives up to expectations ****”  The Star
“Solar Taxi’s debut album works as a hook filled introduction to one of the most exciting new bands in Irish music.” The Blend

With a stellar 2012 behind them, Solar Taxi are kicking off 2013 with the single release of ‘Parcels’ on March 1st.  Written in the studio by vocalist Aisling Browne as a last minute addition to their debut album ‘Broken Brother’s Secret Bells’, this orchestral slow burner is regarded by many as the finest track on this diverse album.

Having previously hit the airwaves and bagging licensing opportunities with upbeat tracks such as ‘Gung Ho’ & ‘The Fool’, Solar Taxi display a different side with ‘Parcels’. The single is a radio edit of the near 7 minute opus on the album, and sees the band in fine form as they raise the track to a cinematic climax. They are joined by the Violin & Cello skills of Michelle Haberlin & Jessica Maderson.

Solar Taxi and Laundry Shop are performing a double headliner in Whelan’s of Wexford Street, Dublin on 21st March and Roisin Dublin in Galway on 24 March.

Accompanying the single release is a beautifully shot video by Quincy productions –
