METZ release new single and music video ‘Hail Taxi’

METZ have shared the video for their thumping brand new single ‘Hail Taxi’.

The song is the second single from the Canadians upcoming fourth studio album, Atlas Vending, which is set to be released on October 9th via Sub Pop with filmmaker A.F. Cortés taking up the reigns of directing the video for the latest track.

The band have described the track as being “about looking back, coming to terms with who you were and who you’ve become”.

Whereas Cortés said the following on his vision for the video, “the idea of longing for the past creates many visual motifs that I’ve wanted to explore for some time, even more so now in the current climate.”

“I purposefully avoided literal connections to the current state of the world. I wanted to create a piece that feels timeless, the sense of isolation palpable within the subtext of the story. We can hide our feelings, but we can’t run from them,” Cortés added.
