While wandering around on iTunes earlier this week I found a new, amazing band that is perfect for long summer nights, campfires, sunsets, and beaches. They are called
“The Boxer Rebellion”an international indie band formed in London, United Kingdom in 2001. They consist of Nathan Nicholson (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Andrew Smith (lead guitar), and Adam Harrison (bass guitar) and Piers Hewitt (drums).
Their new album, Ocean by Ocean, will be released on April 29, 2016, in perfect timing for your summer playlist. Their song “Big Ideas” is full of catchy, beautiful lyrics, an upbeat instrumental background, and a beat that makes you want to dance. You know that song that you play with your windows down, driving in the country with the summer air blowing in? This is that song. I can already see myself around a campfire with a thousand lightning bugs coming out, or at the county fair, or laughing with my friends when I listen to this song. I can also see myself at the beach as the sun is setting, which sadly I won’t actually see this summer, but this song will at least help me imagine I’m there!
I became an immediate fan as I also loved their other songs, “Keep Me Close” and “Weapon.” “Ocean by Ocean” will be the fifth album by the Boxer Rebellion, so have no fear, your summer playlist is set with these guys. Just roll down your windows and get ready for campfires, summer is here and so is great music.
