SHUKAKU is our latest gift to you, something a little heavier than usual 😉 We just wanted to write something cool, energetic and with a little more RIFFAGE poured on. Our first video in the new ‘stripped back’ format, we recorded this last weekend with the addition of a new guitar camera mount. This track is massive fun to play.
Also, excessive use of a delay pedal was used in the making of this video….
It’s Friday night so you know what that means… another Boxtape video coming your way
We present Mirrored Milk Sea, a song inspired by how the ocean looks in the moonlight. Glimmering, dramatic and mysterious. This is an instrumental track, no choruses or quick thrills here, just atmosphere, feeling and build ups, oh yes!
This is probably one of our favourite tracks to play live; we’ve worked hard to get some interesting dynamics into this one, and show off some of those creamy PRS/valve tones. Let us know what you think!
Yesterday we had our first big boy practice at QM studios, and boy was it fun! It’s a little studio in our home town that we’ve been going to for years, but we haven’t been back for a while. It was really helpful to start playing these songs loud and start finalizing effects / sounds and dynamics! As well as running through all the tracks we have (getting them gig ready) we started work on a new shiny idea.
Yes, we know all our songs are “new” to you as we haven’t released anything yet, but this is the first of the “second batch” if you like. We recorded a little sneak preview clip above!
Speaking of releasing things, we’ve been having a few discussions and would like to get a solid track out into the world relatively soon. A loose plan is to get some rough demos down, pick the track we think works best a single, then find a nice studio to record it in.
As we have mostly finished creating the first 5 Boxtape tracks; some instrumental, some with vocals, but all interesting. We are at the tweaking / listening / practising stage, once up to par we intend to unleash a couple of these tracks through the medium of video, huzzah!
