Boxes – Throw Your Stones by BOXES
Evoking the likes of The Postal Service and Bright Eyes, Boxes collides contagious and uplifting melodies with messed-up synths, guitars & punching beats making melancholy feel like a warm summer’s day.
Boxes, a multi-instrumentalist based in South East London manages to alternate between dazzling, revelatory out-of-body love songs and universal ruminations on life; the binding thread being Boxes’ potent stream-of-consciousness, bright jangly guitars, infectious ambient beats, faux strings and iPad bleeps.
Beginning with hair-standing tingles, debut single Throw Your Stones bounces between a hypnotic beat and threadbare, bright intoxicating vocals before finally rushing headlong into a mesmerizing crescendo; as if singing could save a life.
With tour dates coming up, an EP release in August, as well as his debut album in the works for early 2012 Boxes sums up with “What’s coming now, will blow your mind”, a bold and shining statement from the single Throw Your Stones.
