This week on the show I’m featuring Box of Light from Norwich, UK! I’ve had a lot of interesting Norwich acts on the show in my day and Box of Light are no different. They are a pick from Mr Jason who is single-handedly providing content for our #acrossthepond campaign so shouts to him! Box of Light is a dangerously new, young band who were propelled into internet stardom from to their vocalist, Helen Anderson, who prior to starting the band was a bit of a YouTube celebrity. The band is benefitting from this bit of fame and have been self-releasing singles and music videos ever since, the latest of which has been “The Island” which I will be playing. I spoke to Roz, Adam, and Connor from the band about tie-dye t-shirts, YouTube commenters, and why they’re not a “girl group.” Dip!
