To mark the release of much anticipated new album ‘MELT’, Boxed In are coming to Exeter as part of their UK tour. Lead singles JIST and FORGET have been doing the rounds on BBC 6 Music for some time now.
After featuring in The Guardian’s “New band of the day” in October 2013, Boxed In released his first single “All Your Love Is Gone” through Moshi Moshi Records in November 2013. His eponymous, electro-dance-pop debut album followed in January 2015, released by Nettwerk Records, to a swathe of positive reviews, including NME – “the debut album from Boxed In will enhance your life” – Clash magazine – “the songwriter fuses blissful electronics with a very English sense of the psychedelic” – and The Line of Best Fit. Stylistically, the album drew comparisons with LCD Soundsystem and Hot Chip.
The album, and lead singles “Mystery”, “Run Quicker” and “False Alarm”, were enthusiastically supported across BBC Radio 1 (including Huw Stephens’ It’s Album Time session), BBC Radio 6 Music (including a live session with Lauren Laverne), KCRW (the album reached the station’s top 10 albums of 2015) and Spotify. This led to sold-out shows at London’s XOYO and Oslo (Hackney) venues.
On 15 June 2016, Stereogum and BBC Radio 6 Music’s Lauren Laverne premiered Boxed In’s new single “Jist” from forthcoming album “Melt”. The track features on Laverne’s Just Added playlist. The album is due for release via Nettwerk Records on 23 September 2016.
