"This is one boy/girl duo who aren't dealing in cute and cuddly lo-fi. Fast, furious, and possessing more attitude in their smudged eyeliner than should be legal."
BlackboxRed sparks with energy. While Eva fights a fierce battle with her guitar, Stefan's propelling drums spiral them out of control, resulting in an awe-inspiring spectacle. Make no mistakes; this is one loud, seductive, and danceable Dutch duo.
Genuine rawness combined with bits of grunge, garage, blues and electro, topped with the out-bursting energy of a well-shaken soda can. Inspired by the likes of The Dead Weather, Crystal Castles and The Joy Formidable you get the idea of what these two are getting at.
In winter 2011 BlackboxRed released their first EP "Battle the Sparrows", which in spring 2012 was also released in the UK. After extensive touring through the UK, Germany, the Netherlands and Denmark it's now time for them to make their mark with a first full-length.
The BlackboxRed debut album 'The Gunner and the Ghost' is released on October 11th 2013 on Geertruida Records. The first single of this album, 'Stripper', comes with a vicious video, inspired by the dark edges of Tarantino and Burton movies. The second single and video 'The Wild' takes you on hypnotic trip with the repeating guitar and drumbeat and a mezmerizing video.
Their new EP 'Beak to Beak' will be released digitally in December 2014 and a special 10" vinyl will be released on Eurosonic Noorderslag 2015, alongside with some release shows. First single of this EP is 'Hollow', which comes with a dark Sin City-inspired video, with - ofcourse - a female lead model.
