Box of Wolves is a hybrid 90′s Summer Nostalgia/Chill-/Synthwave music project nursed by Canuck Gabriel Akinrinmade out of the whims of his sundry synth modulator experiments. Highly reminiscent of the sounds of Teen Daze, Com Truise, and Washed Out, Box of Wolves, even to bottom-tier music aficionado, runs like a non-obnoxious transcendental LSD alt-party set list. It’s equal parts chill, equal parts solid, thanks in part to basic but grippingly steady beats. Gems from the ‘Illusions’ LP include “The Wake Up”, the crash of industrial waves spliced through rousing syncopated delay. “Glitter Vision”, the aural transcription of the perpetual glint in your eyes, complete with sensory warping evinced by the fading in, fading out, and “To Want You”, a composite of slippery smooth “Fuck, You, You, Yous”.
