This is our first attempt at some behind the scenes documentary type video. It’s for our next upcoming vid which is a cover of Jonas Blue’s “Perfect Strangers”.
It would be cool to know what you think about it, whether you like it, if you find it interesting? Please put it all in the comments. It includes things such as tea drinking, Pro Tools time-lapse’s and mouth percussion.
Bonus information – we actually wrote the background music for this yesterday evening as finding royalty free music for this vid was boring us to tears. Of course we filmed it all, so there might actually be a behind the scenes of a behind the scenes video coming as well
In this video we chat about our interesting week – our big plans for video content, how we’re going to mix things up with our style, ask about what you’d like to see for merch, and Kieren is attacked by a bitey floof.
We really would love to hear what you think, please get in touch via our Facebook, youtube comments or just drop us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get chatting!
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?
Surprise! Those lovely people over at Grrrls With Guitars are premiering our official music video for Fancy Objects today!! If you want to see it before we officially release it tomorrow, head over to their site
Guys have we got a surprise for you! On a whim we decided to write/record/film a Christmas song…… We goofily present Cats+Trees, not at all to be taken seriously but we hope it gets you in the festive mood 🙂
We’ve had a blast over the last 2 weeks putting this together and we really hope you enjoy it! As always if you love it/hate it or have any feedback please email us @ email@example.com it really helps us to know what you think.
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.
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.
We finally we did it, we recorded the first Boxtape song! Not only that we did it in style as a live performance video. The track is called “This is a story about a” and falls more on our experimental / art side than our postrock side.
We hope you enjoy it, we had great fun on a very grey and lazy autumn Sunday recording this.
