HILLING­DON four piece band Bloxx have a new sin­gle out this week on iTunes and all the ma­jor MP3 down­load sites.

‘Ur Boyfriend’ has the fa­mil­iar sub­ject mat­ter of not be­ing too fond of your friend’s part­ner for what­ever rea­son.

Be it a hunch or a tiny twinge of jeal­ousy we’ve all been there and the most suc­cess­ful of song­writ­ers ex­press the themes we re­late to all too well.

Bloxx cer­tainly have that knack of en­cap­su­lat­ing an emo­tion within a three minute record­ing.

Singer Ophe­lia Booth’s vo­cal tones are both haunt­ing and catchy in this lat­est of­fer­ing and the band’s style has an ar­chaic mod­ernism in that a gui­tar echo that wouldn’t be too dis­placed in a 1950s rock and roll record fits just per­fectly within their enig­matic and unique sound­scape.

If you’re lucky you can catch Bloxx play­ing live tonight (Wed­nes­day Oc­to­ber 26) at The Un­der­belly in Hox­ton Square, N1 6NU. Tick­ets are £5 on the door.

But if this heads up is too late for you just down­load their songs and have your own in­door Bloxx party www.bloxx.band­camp.com is a treat for your ears. Check them out now.
