Each song is crafted with the same pick and mix approach, and the resultant tracks have muscle with nuance, as well as plenty of ear candy for the rhythmically inclined. Critical and commercial reaction to the band's eponymous debut was noteworthy on a world scale. The music video for single "Pyramid" earned rotation on Canadian music television stations, and the track was selected to appear on the prestigious French label Kitsune's Maison Compilation 11. It was chosen by NME as a Top-10 download, stating it “quickly takes on a fresh sound of its own”.
UK’s Dazed & Confused magazine said “(Pyramid) takes a hedonistic approach with high energy results on a new breed of dance." The EP was re-released in September on Rallye Label in Japan, selling out 1,000 copies on its initial offering. “All signs point to Nightbox as the most likely successors to Two Door Cinema’s Club’s worldwide ubiquity”, states prominent Irish blog Nialler9. This past summer, Nightbox toured the UK, including plays at the prestigious Reading & Leeds Festivals. They also earned a slot at Ireland’s Electric Picnic Festival where BBC exclaimed, “The glitchy synths and the guitars sound delightful... and by jove do they know how to write a hook”.
Nightbox recently supported Death From Above 1979 at their homecoming Toronto show and toured across Canada supporting fellow Canadian artist Lights. They also remixed Lights’ single “Toes”, released as a bonus track on iTunes pre-orders of her sophomore album ‘Siberia’. Check out Nightbox, because seeing, and hearing, is believing.
