The End: Oli Bayston of Boxed In on Endings and Death

Boxed In

A Legacy Unpacked

Jan 30, 2015

The bulk of the weight of Oli Bayston's musical constructions as Boxed In rests upon two pillars: the motorik rhythms of Krautrock and the heady core of Chicago house. "Krauss music," Bayston jokes over the phone when asked if this is a fair description of Boxed In. More

In 2011 the loss of LCD Soundsystem created a polished, ludicrously-danceable pop power vacuum, one which many bands have tried to step into, but none so successfully as Boxed In. The work of London based producer Oli Bayston, Boxed In captures the euphoria and bitterness of James Murphy's creation whilst bringing something very distinctively "Boxed In" to the fore. More

"Forget," is an odd title for Boxed In to give the best song on his new album Melt, considering the track has both a groove and chorus that are catchy enough to stay in your mind, and keep you humming along, long after you've finished listening to it.  More

In the five or so years since the disbandment of his competition-winning group Keith, British master of all things musical Oli Bayston has been busy learning and growing. He spent a good chunk of time becoming skilled at the ins and outs of the studio, writing songs with Lily Allen and Lianne La Havas, among others, and being a pianist-for-hire. Through these endeavors, the London-based Boyston has formed himself into Boxed In. More
