It’s a promising start for London soloist Boxed In with his flourishing debut single “All Your Love is Gone”, and a far cry from helping out on Lily Allen songs.
Credited for work on records by Allen and TOY, Oli Bayston is now taking the solo spotlight with the thriving, pulsating “All Your Love is Gone”. Crisp piano and meaty bass meander around a tight motorik rhythm as Bayston curls his lip with drawled vocals. Repetitive melodies and sharp beats deftly build the song to a gratifying climax, with the combined textures sounding not a world away from “No.1 Against The Rush” by Liars. It’s exciting stuff.
‘All Your Love is Gone’ is released on limited edition 7″ vinyl and download on 25 November via Moshi Moshi Singles Club. Boxed In headlines The Waiting Room, London on 2 December.
