Boxes collides contagious melodies with messed-up synths, guitars & punching beats…. and makes melancholy feel like a warm summers day. A delicate balance of The Postal Service, Bright Eyes & The Killers.
Boxes is the solo project of multi-instrumentalist Carey Willetts. Carey is no stranger to success having spent the past 10 years as the bass player in multi-platinum selling indie band Athlete. When the band decided to take a break last year Carey wasted no time in getting into the studio to work on his own material. After just a few demos it was clear that he had knack for writing delicate verses, coupled with huge choruses and a voice that could send shivers down the spine. The
result was that he was offered a record deal in his own right within weeks and Boxes was born.
Boxes debut album ‘Stickers’ was released in May 2012 featuring the singles ‘Throw Your Stones’ and ‘Silent Alarm’ and was warmly received by both press and radio with regular plays on XFM, 6 Music, Radio 1 & Radio 2.
Boxes live is not your regular 4 or 5 piece band with drums & guitars etc. Expect something different. Expect visuals from 80s video games on retro TVs, looped beats and keyboards controlled by iPads, joysticks and loop pedals… expect intimate and anthemic.
Plus Special Guests Joel Pott (Athlete), Iain Archer, Michele Stodart (Magic Numbers)
