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

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

Fancy Objects In A Fancy Studio

So we’ve been super secret about this (unless you’ve been following our Twitter) but last weekend we were in the studio recording our first single. Boom!

Excited, yes, sounding awesome, yes.

We spent Saturday / Sunday at a delightful little studio in Brighton called Small Pond. Tracking guitars, vocals and working on the arrangement, as well as the fun stuff of mixing and playing around with silly gear; plus adding the all important fairy sparkle.

Huge thanks to George Mckenzie for engineering / producing it, I think it surpassed both our expectations of what it could become.

If you’re on our mailing list, Good news! You’ll be getting ‘Fancy Objects’ for free before release date (which is still tbc) if you’re not, what are you waiting for? SIGN UP HERE

All Things Purring

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.

But for now, enjoy!
