Praise For Boxed In:
“SXSW New Favorite Band Alert” – KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic
“Boxed In’s self-titled debut is a collection of really smart dance music. It summons up the spirit of LCD, Hot Chip, is peppered with a musical line appreciative of House music, and…heads into poppy Krautrock territory with more than pleasant results. From start to finish, there’s a lot of very tasty syncopation, grooves, and tons of melodic hooks to dig into.” – XPN “The Key” 
“With Boxed In, Bayston comes as close as anyone in creating cerebral dance pop that works for the non-EDM dance music enthusiast as much as the experimental electronic rock enthusiast.”  — Under The Radar
“The live project of producer Oli Bayston glides along on smooth basslines and skittering drums: ideal for dancing in wellies.” – Time Out London’s“Best Up And Coming Acts You’ll See Outside This Summer” (Summer Festival Preview)
“…a well-crafted set of piano-driven electro-pop combining house and motorik rhythms with driving piano, atmospheric synths, smooth vocals and catchy pop hooks.” — 
“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
