The Boxing – ‘Violet Sun’ | Overblown Track Premiere

‘Violet Sun’ will be available to stream from today.

We’re covering a lot of stuff from the English city of Leeds recently, and it’s certainly no coincidence. The city is alive with the new alternative talent of tomorrow and throwing up spectacular bands left, right and centre. One of these outstanding groups is The Boxing, three sonic pariahs peddling their own unique take on psychedelic rock.

Dark, moody and idiosyncratic as hell, ‘Violet Sun’ – the single we’re premiering today on Overblown – is the perfect example of the band’s searing and vociferous talent; classic spacey vocals that you’d find on any psychedelic track coupled with adventurous (yet rigorous) production clouded in an aura of inky-black mystery. It’s a recipe for us to fall in love. The band have already seen plaudits from Amazing Radio and BBC Introducing – consider us at Overblown a firm fan too.

The Boxing have several upcoming live dates if you want to catch them performing live:

Feb 26th | Leeds, Temple of Boom
Mar 30th | Leeds, Lending Room
May 20th | Leeds, Brudenell Social Club
