We’ve been meaning to feature the debut single for Sydney artist Boxxer for a week or so, but have naughtily left it ’til now to give it its deserved time in the sunshine on our pages.
The “singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist”, real name Dion Shaw, has been quietly honing his electronic craft in his bedroom for more than a year, but it’s clear from first listen of ‘The Air Inside My Lungs’ that isolation and practice yield spectacular results.
It’s an incredibly confident debut; layered indie-pop leaning vocal tracks atop an alluring R&B beat, with lashings of glimmering synths in the choruses providing plenty of light and shade. Fab imagery for the cover too!
Brilliantly, Boxxer is offering the track up as a free download from his Soundcloud account (link below). Best you hit that play button. You’ll then be wanting to hit the download button too.
