Just Gotta Hold On…….

Introducing our dreamy/indie-pop cover of Tom Waits’ track Hold On.

Filmed on Saturday night in our sheltered little town of Horsham, West Sussex  This song (well, Tom Waits) was suggested by Anna Vïper in our recent competition, the talented artist who put together our new intro/end screen.. thanks, Anna!

We had great fun with this track, mainly how much reverb we could put on every single instrument ;D and are very happy with how it came out in such a short space of time.

If you dig it please like, share, subscribe you know the drill.

See you soon


Bright Lights, Bright Lights!

It’s a new year and while we’ve been looking at things to improve in 2017 we thought some kick ass photos might be in order!

So yesterday we had a big ole photo shoot in our hometown of Horsham. We’ve been working with the very talented Rosie Powell and the idea and cornerstone of this shoot was “quirky”.

We had lots of different set ups and costume changes, including being outside in literal freezing cold temperatures wearing very thin t-shirts. We can’t wait to see the finished pics, but for now here’s some behind the scenes shots of us being silly.

Special thanks goes out to Sussex Lighting (UK) Ltd for being very gracious hosts and giving us free reign in the shop, cheers guys!

Also thanks to Sarah-Kye Faulkner for the pics and make-up on the day, you rock!

Our First Gig + Upcoming Photo Shoot

We are still alive, yes, and as proof of this we have booked our first ever Boxtape gig! We will be playing at The Greys in Brighton on June 12, as part of a three day Anarcho Punk Folk Acoustic Festival. There are some class acts on the bill already, with more to be confirmed. Full details when we get them.

Aside from the gig we’ve also organised a photo shoot for us two Boxtapians, due to be happening this weekend in our hometown of Horsham. Expect boxes, brick walls, beaten up vans and anything else beginning with B we can think of.

Until next time.
