The concept was born when Portuguese singer/songwriter Bruno Rocha decided to have a parallel project, more indie/alternative sounding than his solo one (Self Shot Soul). He contacted producer Mario Goossens (producer of The Black Box Revelation and Team William), and challenged him to produce an EP with five new songs. Mario has accepted the challenge and they both started working together in the pre-production of the songs.
In the meantime Bruno met Belgian drummer Bruno Goedhuys and they started rehearsing together, and the energy of the duo was great right from the start. All this increased one notch when Gilles Verougstraete joined them to play the bass. They've rehearsed as a trio for a while, but something was missing to achieve the level of detail of the album's arrangements, so the band kept looking for a second guitar player. That's when Pascal Smets joined, and the flow of the band has again increased with this new member.
Their first EP was recorded at the Konkstudios in London, with some overdubs and the mixing being done at The Garden studios, also in London. The band is currently writing more songs and a second studio effort is foreseen still within 2010.
The band is named "Box", and the sound is a powerful indie rock, with herculean drums, riff driven fuzzed guitars and fat basses supporting lyrics that always aim at leaving a strong statement in the listeners brain.
