Boxed In To Release Acclaimed Debut Album March 31



“The debut album from Boxed In will enhance your life…Oli Bayston is an impressive songwriter and his piano-pinned dance-pop album carries zero duds.” — NME

“…a beauty, capturing Bayston’s housed-up, lo-fi appeal, which involves locked-in, Hot Chip recalling grooves, world-weary, Bernard Summer-like vocals and simple-as-pie melodies that worm their way into your soul and claim squatters rights. Stunning.” — Sunday Times “Debut Of The Week”

"Boxed In…hits hard enough in places to get the party started and holds just enough back to make you want to return to it again and again.” — The Line of Best Fit

“A charming blend of electronic and indie sounds bolstered by witty songwriting …a winning debut that's often more consistent than the work of their better-known contemporaries.” – All Music

"'All Your Love Is Gone’ is one of those motorik rave-ups that just keeps building intensity, and Michael Rother has given it a makeover that maintains the brisk urgency while significantly changing its sound.” —
Stereogum

The Glimmer EP includes remixes by New Orleans-born, Connecticut-based DJ Emjae and a collaboration with Stereojackers and Mark Loverush.

Listen And Share “Glimmer” Feat. Emily Haines:


"Glimmer reads a bit like a Hollywood mystery having been lost for years, has resurfaced by happenstance" says Bill Leeb of Delerium. "When our music engineer and mixer, Greg Reely, was pilfering through some recordings, he stumbled upon this song that features Emily Haines of Metric. As it turns out, this track comes from the Chimera album sessions when I collaborated with Carmen Rizzo and Jamie Muhoberac. The song's words remind us even in the darkest moments when it seems all is lost, with perseverance and a little luck, we can find our own place and keep that glimmer of hope."
