'OVER' Release Date
Boxes are a four piece Country Rock outfit hailing from Manchester, UK. But can also appear in an acoustic duo
The band have been hailed as 'Nashville -Upon-Irwell' as they have been likened to the country scene in the Southern states but have maintained elements of the North West of England deep within their music. The river Irwell being the river which flows through the city they now reside in, Manchester.
They've grown a following over lockdown where they have shared the online stage with many of the UK tops country talents, mainly preforming as an acoustic duo as David and Josh live together. Their new single 'Over' was played on Chris Country, Arc Country Radio as well as many independent stations - the single even caught the attention of The Shires who highlighted Boxes as their one to watch on their Apple Music radio show.
They have a busy July coming up, including appearances at Tennessee Fields Festival, BBQ Bus and headlining Manchester based all day festival 'below the bridge'
Over - Single Breakdown
Over is a song about a breakup and all the feelings which come with a relationship coming to an end. The very name itself sets out quite strongly that the relationship is officially over, the first and second verse set the scene of when the relationship came to an end, when she walked out.
The chorus is asking several questions to her; if she was ever really there for him? was the love ever really true? Because everything he felt was always true, from the moment he met her and to some extent still is. 'My hearts been there ever since that I met you'
The third verse is all about wondering who's fault was it that it was over, was it his for keeping things stale in the relationship? He tries to reauure himself that it she was quite hard to read - he questions what he could of done different.
The fourth verse is an acceptance of it being over, and that even after all this heart break and love lost that he would do it all over again for the good times, as they alone were worth all the pain he know feels.
