Indie-electro-pop hailing from South East London. 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 and 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 earlier this 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.
The Boxes EP was released in September 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. After playing 'Silent Alarm' for the first time on Radio One's Edith Bowman said "...It's brilliant!...I think it's great. I think it's so catchy; it's a lovely, lovely song. I'd like to play that more please."
