With an intriguing music video that begs as much attention as the song itself and offers a perfect mirror of the triumphantly lonely sound heard in this (radio ready) bonus track, "House on Fire" is sure to make as much (if not more) of a mark in the alternative rock music scene this year as the rest of the songs on Black Taxi's latest EP, Chiaroscuro.
The band's sound is unique and undeniably catchy (probably best compared to a solid mixture of Smallpools and Red Hot Chili Peppers) and, with a hook that repeats "I don't want to be alone, please just help me find you...I just want to get along, like a house on fire" I can't help but play this on repeat. Plus, I am always a sucker for a song with a good trumpet solo; when that trumpet came in at that 2:53 mark, I knew I was hooked.
Listen to "House on Fire" and grab your copy of Chiaruscuro today, because it's awesome.
