Boxed In To Release Acclaimed Debut Album March 31
March 17, 2015 BY Nettwerk
“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

After garnering rave reviews from around the UK, Boxed In will see the North American release of his self-titled debut on March 31st. Single “All Your Love Is Gone,” along with a special remix from Neu!’s Michael Rother, will be available on January 27th. Listen to the remix here: http://bit.ly/1yOT3CR.
Boxed In is the first solo endeavor from sought after UK songwriter/producer Oli Bayston, who got his start in indie band Keith and has since collaborated with the likes of 2 Bears, Steve Mason, Willy Mason, Lianne La Havas, Lily Allen and more.
Under the Boxed In moniker, Bayston combines his two greatest musical loves, Krautrock and house music, taking inspiration from the motorik rhythms of Can and Neu!, as well as house DJs like Pépé Bradock and Theo Parrish. Boxed In is intellectual without being pretentious, wide-ranging yet accessible and will unite club and indie-rock crowds in a way so few can do.
Stay tuned for more news from Boxed In.
