Silent Alarm – Boxes

29 Nov

Judging a music video is hard work. There are some amazing ones, which I will share next week, but so so so many really boring ones. They are just genuinely quite bland and seem like an after thought when releasing a single. This is definitely one that is in the first category.

So last night I found this band Boxes. They’ve been on Dermot O’Leary’s show and the song Silent Alarm drew my attention just because it was a shout out to Bloc Party. But it’s a great song on its own, forgetting the reference. A lovely blend of indie-electro-pop, it just really works.

But getting back to this video. What a story. Watch it in its entirety and definitely don’t watch it on YouTube because the comments will spoil something that will make you gasp! And I think we all gasp far too infrequently these days (do people even say gasp?).
