The Boxer Rebellion’s fifteen year career has spanned many albums and EPs, with a smattering of TV and soundtrack features, they’ve done well for themselves. With Ocean By Ocean being the boys’ first album in five years, this will really prove if they can stand the test of time and be relevant in this ever-changing musical landscape.
The motif of nature and the elements is present throughout the album.’Weapon’ starts things off, sweeping over you and pulling you and sweeping you off your feet, making you curious as to what the rest of the album holds. Sadly the aforementioned song is the only one will keep you spinning round, as the rest of the album sounds just like any other Indie band; a great exterior in the first few bars of the song, but a fairly average middle and ending.
