Ocean By Ocean
2016 release from the London quartet. The Boxer Rebellion has a knack for writing album after album of jaw dropping beauty, and it's fifth is no exception. Now in their 15th year as a band, Ocean By Ocean is quite simply The Boxer Rebellion's most complete record to date. Three years since the band's fourth album, Promises, and with the addition of new guitarist Andrew Smith, Ocean By Ocean presents itself as an accomplished, beautifully orchestrated and impeccably freighted album, with a depth of emotion to every one of the 10 songs that lift each towards the hymnal. Produced by the band in conjunction with the notable Billy Bush (Garbage, Jake Bugg, Against Me!), the sound is brooding and ruminative, with singer Nathan Nicholson's rising falsetto casting an eerie lava lamp glow on songs that sound good before midnight, and even better afterwards.
