2014 was the year KCRW listeners were first introduced to a few singles from Boxed In, the project of British musician/producer Oli Bayston. The release of a self-titled debut album followed in 2015, and this sealed the deal.
KCRW DJs loved playing these songs. Jason Bentley welcomed Oli and the band into the basement for a Morning Becomes Eclectic session. To nobody’s surprise, Boxed In found its way onto several of our year-end top-ten lists.
Oli wasted no time getting to work on album number two, Melt, which will be released September 23 on Nettwerk Records.
Check out the first sounds from the forthcoming album “Shadowboxing,” which received its world premiere on Morning Becomes Eclectic.
