Melbourne band Black Cab formed in 2004 with Andrew Coates and James Lee.

The bands fourth album, Games of the XXI Olympiad was released in November 2014 to critical acclaim and sold out shows in Melbourne. The album was partly inspired by the 1976 Summer Olympics. The same year they supported Kraut gods, Tangerine Dream.

In 2015 the band supported US rocktronica group Ratatat on their east coast Australian tour and headlined the Paradise Music Festival.
In 2016 the band appeared at Golden Plains festival and in March 2016 released a single, Uniforms.
