The Taboos

Contemporary alternative rock outfit The Taboos are releasing new punchy track ‘Midnight’.
Out on 12-11-21 

“The Taboos rely on heavy indie rock and sliding guitar solos to make their mark. To describe The Taboos in two words? Feisty and ridiculously fiery.” – Gigslutz

For fans of: Arctic Monkeys, Foals, Biffy Clyro and The Strokes.

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 radios.

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.
