Boxed In: Melt (Nettwerk)

Boxed In Melt (Nettwerk)

Oli Bayston’s debut offered a tidy blend of cerebral dance pop and experimental electronic rock, defined further on this follow-up. Starting upbeat with the grooving “Jist,” Bayston steadily takes the tempo down as the album progresses. On the way he hits the early-’ 90s rave-up “Forget,” the quiet tones of “Black Prism,” and the softly grazing rhythms of “Open Ended.” As great as the combination of elements is, Bayston’s universally pleasing voice remains the main attraction.

Watch the official video for “Forget.”
