Jailbox announce new single ‘Whole’!

The charming sensibilities of US four-piece Jailbox are on full display once again as they prepare to release their beautiful single Whole, due for release on 9th December 2016 via FarmerTanz Records.

The single premiered on Impose Magazine and can be streamed via the Jailbox Soundcloud page now.

A follow up to the recently released single Idea Jar, the St. Louis collective have created another whimsical track; beguiling the listener through its sheer elegance. Repetitive piano opens the song, hypnotically pulling you in, as gorgeous harmonised vocals soothingly wash over you, enhanced further by simple, yet effective, acoustic guitar and knitted together neatly by an expertly executed percussion section. The lyrics poignantly explore themes of love, loss and what could have been; topics we can all identify with. Jailbox have once again proven their ability to write emotionally powerful music; a sonic equivalent to an arrow through the heart.

Comprised of Andrew Tanz (vocals, keyboards, guitar, bass, percussion), Joseph Bassa (vocals, guitars, percussion), Aaron Essner (percussion, drums) and Trent Dickerson (bass,vocals) Jailbox formed in 2009 as a moniker for their home recordings which was taking place in their home state of Missouri. After going on hiatus for two years, the 2015 writing and recording of Idea Jar marked a welcome return for the band and was the start of a creative period that has seen the release of one single and video and has been quickly followed by the stunning single Whole.

Having supported the likes of Vetiver, Devendra Barnhart, Still Corners, Daniel Johnston and Pines as well as playing renowned venue Pappy & Harriet’s in Pioneertown as part of Coachella, Jailbox are aiming to end 2016 on a high by showcasing their ethereal sound to a world-wide audience.

Whole by Jailbox is due for release on 9th December 2016 via FarmerTanz Records.
