BevFest Pt2

We’d just like to say a massive thank you to BevFest for having us play yesterday! Such a lovely day and atmosphere in Bevendean with lots of very varied and interesting bands.

Thanks guys, we hope you raised lots of money!

Summer Fire…. Is Here!

Wahey, it’s finished!! New track from us, a bit of an acoustic dance / Craig David vibe (ok maybe in one section slightly). Very upbeat, summery, makes-you-want-to-go-on-holiday feel to this one. Also features a delicious creamy guitar solo!

This was the first of a handful of new tracks (you haven’t heard yet) that we deliberately wrote in a standard “pop” structure to see what we could do with it.

Please, feast your eyes and ears on our latest creation – also check out the 3-word chorus – feel free to sing along   & let us know what you think.

Wouldn’t Want To Be

New performance video and our first upload of 2017

This is our track “Wouldn’t Want To Be” and it is actually the first track we ever wrote as Boxtape. We’re still now working on / defining our style, trying to get our heads around meshing riffy distorted guitar with folky acoustic.

This is where it all started and actually we don’t think it holds up too badly. What do you reckon?

We really hope you enjoy it!

P.S look out for the fancy new camera angle

Bear, Brytz and Boxtape

Better late than never but we just wanted to say a big thank you to Overhead Wires Music, Andy Voakes, Sam the sound man, Bear Bozeman, Romarni Brytz and everyone who was at The Brunswick last night. We had an awesome time playing for you and we really hope you enjoyed our set!

We’ll be back down in Brighton in a few weeks time, but firstly we’re off to Maidenhead!

Check out some pics below 🙂

Heck we’ve done another video!

The first of (hopefully) many for our first YouTube series. This time it’s of our new track “Power Of The Page”, a rather thoughtful piece about how sometimes knowledge can be perceived as a bad thing. If you like moody, reverb drenched brooding music check it out! Also if you like cats, then definitely check it out

Please share around, comment, tell us what you think, it all really helps.

Thank you x
