song: "Boxes" - Dylan Wright
"Boxes" is sincere, subtle storytelling, with artist Dylan Wright crafting a narrative of loss and moving on. The emotions of being surrounded in a room of "Boxes" from someone who has since departed is perfectly echoed through an ever-shifting single. The track begins with hushed, simple strings, lush drums and Wright's warm vocals, that come tinged in just of a hint of fuzz and reverb. Wright's vocals seemingly echo out above the slow unfurling of anger; leading to an ending of audibly increased noise and passion. The muted strings and passive percussion that begin the song suddenly gather strength and warp into a heated ending of unstoppable noise and reverb. If you've ever experienced loss or you find yourself grappling with change, Wright perfectly captures that momentum — from startling, soft disbelief to renewed energy and determentation.
