Track: Boxed In – Jist

‘Jist’ is the new single from London four piece Boxed In, following on less than a year after their much lauded self-titled debut album. Its also the first glimpse of the bands second album Melt, while the track – according to frontman, songwriter and producer Oli Bayston is about “Getting lost in repetitive thought patterns & the form of the music which emulates that mindset. It’s perversely enjoyable to work yourself in to a cyclical mantra from which there’s no escape,” and was produced by Bayston alongside Dan Carey.

It’s impossibly catchy right from the off, sitting somewhere between LCD Soundsystme and Mylo, this repeating synth pattern worming its way into your psyche, and along with the dark bass heavy rhythm and the singalong/rhymalong lyrics it makes for something that going to stay with you all summer long.
