2012: Top Story: Faces of 2012: Nightbox

Produced by members of MSTRKRFT and Death From Above 1979, the music of Wicklow-raised Montreal-based five-piece Nightbox couldn’t be better suited for their stable at French label Kitsuné. Their debut eponymous EP is electronic flavoured indie dance-pop, with taut guitar lines, synth-key flourishes and instantly catchy choruses.

Describe yourselves and your music.

We’re a five-piece who believe the invention of the drum kit has improved humanity’s standard of living more dramatically than penicillin, sliced bread, and the wheel combined. We dedicate our lives to the primal bliss that rhythm brings.

How did you all meet?

We all ended up at St. Gerard’s School in Bray, via Greystones, Newtown, Canada and the U.S. We all became best friends and started playing music together, recording home demos, entering music competitions, etc. The present Nightbox has been together since we relocated to Toronto in January 2010.
