Track Of The Month | February

Books From Boxes  – Maximo Park

Geordie Quintet released their single ‘Books from Boxes’ in 2007, and ten years later, here I am, madly in love with the alt-rock track. After the band were announced to be playing Y Not? festival (along with many others) in the summer, I made it my mission to listen to their music. ‘Books from Boxes’ was the first track that I listened to by them and it took off from there.

Their indie/ alternative sound is inspired by the likes of post-punk bands such as The Jam and The Smiths. Maximo Park have had great success throughout their career, leaving me a little disappointed that I have only just discovered them, and perhaps their summer appearances are a sign of a new album in the process, it would be the first since 2014.
