BOSTON MANOR return with new single ‘Container’. It marks the first new music from the band in 2024 as they make their return in impassioned and ambitious mood. Full of thrust and intention, ‘Container’ is rich with depth and groove, offering an early signpost to where their sound is taking them next: from parallel universes to personal growth, vivid dreamscapes to raw grief. Lead singer Henry Cox says, “Container explores the idea of second chances, the panic that sets in knowing you need to change your world before it’s too late and you get swallowed up and lost forever. It’s about the stagnancy of life creeping up on you and how that can bring about change.”

Change is a colour that Boston Manor wear well, and ‘Container’ signals the first step in a bold and inspiring new journey.

Working with long-time producer Larry Hibbitt, alongside engineer Alex O’Donovan, the band switched recording from London to the leafier pastures of the home counties. “Because Larry lives out in the countryside now, it was a way different environment and way different experience recording this time,” lead guitarist Mike Cunniff remembers. There’s a brightness to ‘Container’ that feels like purposeful about-turn from the darkness of [2022 album] ‘Datura’.

As a band known for using their music to make bigger statements about society, ‘Container’ is by contrast a look inwards, as they harness the uplifting power of their music and the communion it creates. Cox concludes, “I think it’s really important to write something that people can be immersed in and find some sort of solace in.”
