There’s a ghostly wailing of guitars, gathering pace to an abruptly curtailed crescendo; hailing the latest offering from The Boxer Rebellion. Singer Nathan Nicholson cracks and strains with his emotive vocals, meanwhile the drums and bass drive the song forward. All of these elements combine to create a slice of emo that works alright but fails to create real fire and passion. Instead, just when the song could be taken the extra mile into frenzy and perhaps a satisfying conclusion, it stops. Dead. Like this review. Annoying isn’t it.
The Boxer Rebellion’s debut album goes by the name ‘Exits’ and is due out May 2nd.
