Black Taxi has released their video for their song “Take Off the Edge.” The quirky clip, directed by Carlos López Estrada, will keep you fully entertained for its duration.
“Life has been tough for a lot of people this last year,” said vocalist Ezra Huleatt, offering a keyhole view into the meaning behind the video and the song. “Sometimes it is important to shake the weight of the world off your shoulders for a few hours, realize that your problems are fairly insignificant in the grand scheme, and let loose.”
He furthered, ‘Take Off the Edge’ is in celebration of those moments when we shine, despite the darkness. I’ve been a fan of Carlos Lopez Estrada’s music videos for a long time so it was exciting to finally collaborate with him.”
Carlos López Estrada is a music video director and a Latin Grammy Award recipient.His music video for “Me Voy,” by Mexican pop band Jesse & Joy, earned the title of Best Short Form Music Video at the 2013 Latin Grammy Awards.
He also co-directed “Kangaroo Court” for the band Capital Cities in 2013, as well as Carried Away by Passion Pit.
