The uniqueness that is the Taos sound has proved that they are an upcoming force in the New Zealand music scene. Their captivating cross blend of Aotearoa roots / rock / reggae / dub / dancehall / d'n'b music and ability to create high-energy freestyle flows during their stage performances, always leaves the crowd wanting more.
The boys have mesmerized crowds throughout the country with their conscious, catchy, soulful lyrics, big basslines, skanking guitar riffs, freestyle flows and crowd interaction....resulting in an unforgettable stage performance.
Lately the boys have been polishing their own brand of 'Chugstep' which is like dubstep, but with more Chug Chug Chug from palm muting distorted guitars.
The band was born in 2001 on Waiheke Island, and are now based in Christchurch. The name TAOS came from a few things - The Art Of Sound - Try Achieve Other Styles - Trees Are Organic Sculptures and TAO a Chinese way of thinking.
2012 has been a great year for Taos, the band is currently on a full NZ tour, and looking forward to getting in the studio this winter to re cord their first full length album.
