A steel fist in a velvet glove.
The headlines may speak of other things, but 2017’s dark undercurrent of brooding, primal indie rock continues to run strong. From the defiant revolution of INHEAVEN to the airwave-hogging rise of The Amazons, it’s a throwback that still feels fresh with the scent of youthful rebellion.
That’s the world BLOXX thrive in. ‘Curtains’ pulses with the deep red blood of a band that live in the shadows but shine their own light all the same. Like the sound of a dying alarm call, its power fluctuating, there’s an effortless urgency running through its veins. A steel fist in a velvet glove, it knows what it is.
Everything that bubbles beneath the surface must rise eventually. When it does, expect BLOXX to be ready to make their move. Stephen Ackroyd
