Hey, we are boxboxbox, we’re from Manchester UK and we do blissy beats and other sample-heavy electronic (but human) music. We met earlier this year and have got a single out now (Signals b/w Oliver James) with a full EP on the way in the near future. We’re keeping it lo-tech at the minute – recording vocals in storage cupboards on ancient equipment kind of thing, and after this we’re taking it to live shows around the UK and hopefully further afield.
Influence-wise, we’re all pretty much into a bit of everything and it seeps into our songs in a lot of different ways. As a band, our latest buzzes are weird electronic pop – Montreal is KILLING it (Grimes, Elite Gymnastics, Doldrums, Blood Diamonds, Mozart’s Sister etc) but also stuff like CHVRCHES, Beat Culture, Star Slinger, Stumbleine, Flume… As individuals, Phil’s on a major hip-hop jag at the moment, Lee’s loving himself some house and Helen’s into singer-songwriters as well as stuff like Desire, Electric Youth, Lana Del Ray (the Drive soundtrack is pretty incredible)…
Other than that, just looking forward to getting some more songs out there and getting a live show together, hopefully be seeing people at gigs soon!
Phil, Lee & Helen
