Taxi Taxi

We first stumbled over the Swedish duo Taxi Taxi! because of a newsletter that we’ve received from the Danish record label Rumraket. The label is run by the well-known and highly admired band Efterklang and features several bands that we’d love to work with (Slaraffenland being the other Rumraket-band that we’ve filmed so far). On the morning after their Vienna show in early spring we meet the young twin sisters from Taxi Taxi! for a session at Hotel Fürstenhof. Faint light is falling into their room, when Miriam and Johanna E. Berhan are doing some short rehearsal. They decide on “To Hide This Way” and “Birdful Eyes” and thus leave the song “Still Standing At Your Back Door” out (which is also the title of their first full-length album). At one moment their songs feel really fragile and in the next one they are a live wire and display some great intensity. At the end of the atmospheric performance the drummer, who supported the girls on their tour, drops in saying: “What lovely way to be woken up!”
