Nightbox – Burning

nightbox

Nightbox, hailing from  Toronto, craft a sublime mix of pop and synths that would fit any summer time mix tape.   This track is taken from their EP titled, “The Panic Sequence” due out April 22nd, 2014.


     Short Bio:

Mixed by Grammy-Award winning engineer Gus Oberg (The Strokes, The Virgins, Drowners, Albert Hammond Jr.) and produced by Nightbox themselves, with co-production from Al-P of MSTRKRFT and co-writing from Sebastien Grainger of DFA 1979 on the lead single “Burning,” The Panic Sequence EP is the next progression for a rising band rooted in charmingly humble beginnings.

With their self-titled debut EP on Last Gang Records, Nightbox caught the ears of the BBC, which ranked their performance in the top-10 of that year’s Electric Picnic Festival. Over the next couple years, support slots on both sides of the Atlantic for Ellie Goulding, Cults and DFA 1979 followed, along with international tours with LIGHTS, Dragonette, and most recently Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond Jr. As did critical praise from UK press NMEDazed & ConfusedBBC Radio 1, Canadian media and a slew of top blogs like Neon Gold and Kick Kick Snare.

Now with The Panic Sequence, Nightbox are ready to step out from the shadow of their influences and leave their own musical imprint on Toronto and the wider world.  The EP will be released April 22nd 2014 via Toronto based-label Rare Beef worldwide distributed by Caroline.

Pulling from various genre and making it look easy is the team of Alina Baraz & Galimatias.  Has elements of Trip Hop,  such as the intro and the breathy vocal, but the team goes into a neo-soul / electronic pop vibe in the choruses.
