2022 Spotlight: Blac Rabbit

“If you close your eyes and listen to Amiri and Rahiem Taylor sing together, you might just mistake the talented musicians for John Lennon and Paul McCartney. No, seriously — they're that good.”

Blac Rabbit are a true modern-day success story. A psychedelic rock band from Queens, the group have an uncanny ability to link eras of music with a flick of the riff. Led by twin brothers, songwriters, singers, and guitarists Amiri and Rahiem Taylor, the band takes equal inspiration from The Beatles, ‘80s music, Radiohead, and Tame Impala, crafting an upbeat and enchanting style of rock and roll that feels timeless in nature. 

And that has a lot to do with how they were discovered, playing The Beatles’ “Eight Days A Week in a New York City subway back in 2018. A commuter filmed the Taylor brothers doing a pitch-perfect John Lennon and Paul McCartney impression – and the busking video went viral, racking up 24 million views. What followed was a whirlwind: A television appearance on Ellen, placement in a Gucci ad campaign starring Harry Styles, a collaborative on-stage performance with Tame Impala, and on and on and on.    

Now they’re ready to make their mark with their own music. Blac Rabbit’s March album Interstella is an LP in the age of the single, a comprehensive body of work that’s the soundtrack to a trip inside your head and out. Here’s what others are saying:  

Totally Wired Mag: “Psychedelic rock band Blac Rabbit, from Rockaway Beach in NYC, are phenomenal, and from a place literally named Rockaway, they certainly live up to the name. Blac Rabbit quench the thirst after listening to modern bands such as Tame Impala or Post Animal, psychedelic music is well and truly making its resurgence and taking its stand against the flow of typical indie bands these days….the tightness these guys have for playing their hearts out is fantastic.” 

Pop Sugar: “If you close your eyes and listen to Amiri and Rahiem Taylor sing together, you might just mistake the talented musicians for John Lennon and Paul McCartney. No, seriously — they’re that good.” 

Music Fest News: “The band has some amazing original music, but what draws people in at first are their amazing renditions of Beatles tunes.”
