Fresh off a busy couple of days at Glastonbury, Boxed In shares the official video for current single “Jist,” the first to be taken from their recently announced sophomore album Melt, out on September 23rd.
“Jist” marks the highly anticipated return of Boxed In, the brainchild of Oli Bayston –singer, songwriter, producer and frontman. Produced by Dan Carey and Oli himself, “Jist” is a head-turning, expertly-produced cut of electronic pop, which keeps one foot firmly in Oli’s background – intricate piano lines, taut rhythms – but also digs deeper into the dance music influences tightly compacted within Boxed In.
The accompanying video has been directed by Wayne McCauslin and is a trippy kaleidoscopic tribute, which perfectly compliments the track. Wayne says, “The music video for ‘Jist’ came about initially when incorporating Oli’s liking for surrealist artists that we both admire. I drew a lot of inspiration from the likes of F.Bacon, Escher and Hitchcock whilst trying to keep things funky. Oli’s composition offered me a lot of visual ground for adding elements and glitches here and there, so the creative process felt very natural and it was fun to play with.”
