For Record Store Day this year, Boxed In released their first new music since last year’s ‘Melt’ album, double A-side single ‘Pushing On/Unable’. Lead track ‘Pushing On’ now gets a new lease of life via a newly posted video.

The piano house influenced track was written by Boxed In founder Oli Bayson with electronic producer George Fitzgerald in Berlin. “It was snowing outside, we’d been at Berghain the night before, and the track came together pretty quickly when we got in from the cold”, explains Bayson.

The track now has a video, directed by Davo McConville, which complements the track perfectly. An exhilarating mix of editing and choreography, it focuses on a performance by dancer Imogen Morris Clarke.

“The greatest gift you can receive as a director is amazing music – the right track makes whatever you do visually a pleasure so it has been a joy to work on ‘Pushing On'”, says McConville.

“From first hearing the track” he continues, “Imogen’s journey sprang into my mind fully formed, and in executing it I was blessed by fine folk all around. No animals were harmed in the making of it, but Imogen’s torn ankle ligaments ensured that we were ever on the edge of danger”.
