6. The Box Tiger Set Fire To Your Friends - I first heard of this band during NXNW of last year. This song is off of their new album (not yet available). Sonia’s voice just does something for me, it’s so different and I love it. They’re also not afraid to move around on stage and get a little heavy with their guitar sounds. It’s still at an early stage, but after they’ve recently talked with Jess Abbott about Cardinal White Records, I believe in a year or so this band will be off doing some pretty sweet things. I really like their sound / style, plus they’re just the sweetest people. Who knows, maybe even a tour with Now, Now ;)
It’s too obvious that this band is an influence. The down stroking guitars and soft vocals is what wins my heart over. The guitar parts they come up with are always killer and Cacie perfects her vocal melodies on top of that. The lyrics kill me too. They leave so much up for interpretation and I love that. Just everything about this is ear candy.
