EDITORS’ NOTES

Awash with echoing guitars and cinematic production, Boxer Rebellion’s fifth studio album is a melancholy masterpiece. With Nathan Nicholson's lovelorn lyrics and bittersweet falsetto front-and-center, it’s easy to get lost in the shadowy, synth-fogged haze of pensive ballads like “Pull Yourself Together” and “Keep Me Close.” When the band leans into driving anthems like “Big Ideas” and “Let’s Disappear,” the gorgeous production and sweeping choruses add an emotional depth that’s awe-inspiring.

like the new sound

Always liked the way they insolate each instrament to make a dense, lush, landscape of sound. Each album ever evolving but still capturing what made the previous albums so accessable. Also I do like how the voice is splashed throughout the melody to create a random feel that gives it a great unpolished drama. Hopefully more of their albums continue to be adventurous.....

um. hmm.

Fell in love with this band the first time I heard Semi Automatic. Saw them rock out in a small New England venue years ago…they were brilliant. But then, apparently, something happened…they contracted Coldplay disease. Dark rock gives way to rainbow EDM. Yuck.

Great first sonG!

The early release song is right on— sounds both like Boxer Rebellion, and yet not like their previous work. A very compelling song.
