THE BOXER REBELLION
It’s said that in the current climate, survival is the true measure of success. Now in their 17th year and with their sixth album, The Boxer Rebellion are doing much, much more than that. An album born of hope through heartache, ‘Ghost Alive’ is the band’s most personal and human record to date.
Exploring the darker corners of love, loss, and grief while shining a light on shared human experience, ‘Ghost Alive’ leans on the London four-piece’s more cinematic elements for a gloriously widescreen journey.
Stripping away any excess, this album showcases the bare bones of opulent songwriting that lays at the core of The Boxer Rebellion. Rather than being crushed under the weight of melancholia, ‘Ghost Alive’ is 11 tracks that breathe with an understanding and experience. Bracingly vulnerable and achingly real, it’s a tender triumph from a band whose prime shows no signs of fading.
