Boxed In - Foot Of The Hill (Watch)
24 Nov 2014
Talented songwriter/producer Oli Baystock shares new video for punchy new track.
Boxed In is the project of singer-songwriter/producer Oli Bayston. Bayston has emphasised how important the songwriting aspect is to this project, while also wanting to incorporate the production skills he has learned from his involvement in dance music. With his latest effort, which comes fitted with a rather groovy 60's inspired music video, he seems to have achieved the goal. The pacey rhythm is provided by some of the tightest drums we've heard in a while anda bassline which is almost too creamy. One-off sounds of subtlety are placed carefully across the stripped-back instrumental as Bayston cooly croons about someone who's going to keep him up all night. As for the the songwriting, it has a bit of a post-punk attitude slightly reminiscent of a young Cure in their post-punkier days. Boxed In draws influence from many places to make something concise and immediate, no mean feat.
