Toronto Music Scene August 29, 2012
Hailing from Down Under, Melbourne’s Boy In A Box will steal your heart from first listen. Hello happiness, these are songs that make you feel good like you did when you were 16, when music meant dancing and singing at the top of your lungs. Main man Tobias Priddle possesses an inherently attractive style with punk rock spirit. Earlier material boasts UK elements, but it is track “Moon Comes Up” that highlights the band’s potential – it’s swanky and catchy, pure anthematic moody power pop that digs its nails into summer, forbidding it to leave. It’s likely the most sing-a-long song you’ll hear all week, but don’t take our word for it. See for yourself.
