about

This is the debut LP from our band, Boxed Wine. We made it just for you.

It's called 'Cheap, Fun' (say it with the comma, please) and we want you have it for as little as possible.

This is because you'll steal it anyway and we're realists. If you're going to get it one way or another, you might as well have the best version.

It's PAY WHAT YOU WANT because we're optimistic and think you're charitable. (Also, handsome/beautiful.) Maybe you'll think it's worth throwing a few bucks our way, literally so we can keep making more music and videos for you.

We call it 'indie party pop,' but you can label it however you want.

You should compare it to other relevant musical acts you like, "totes" put your "fave tunes" in a "play-list," then come see us play and dance your rumps off. All we wanna do is make your day better by getting incessantly stuck in your head.

You should also Like our Facebook page so you stay up to date on our shows and other stuff. Social media is everything nowadays.

Ok, bye for now...

Track Name: Cannibal
if there ever was a time
it passed by
hey is the music getting
louder, louder

for me to make you mine
i'm put in overtime
this party's kinda getting
out there, out there

well i don't wanna be left in the open
i don't wanna leave it unspoken
i plan to drink myself clever
like puzzle pieces slowly put together

if i was a cannibal
and you had a heart attack
we could get electrical
i'd bring you back, bring you back

was it ever such a crime
to say you look nice
we're looking better by the
hour, hour

for me to make you mine
drink both the red and white
this party's kinda getting
crowded, crowded

but i don't wanna be let down forever
oh i'll ponder whether not or whether
to bite your tongue you think that you're so clever
nobody else can stand you whatsoever

if i was a cannibal
and you had a heart attack
we could get electrical
i'd bring you back, bring you back

now the music's low
you lean in close
you're mechanical
ain't got no soul

and you're down so low
and you dance so slow
like a seventies
guitar solo!

if i was a cannibal
and you had a heart attack
we could get electrical
i'd bring you back, bring you back
Track Name: First Time
i'll be off in the boonies driving
parachuting lost skydiver
she says she's down for more
oh what we waiting for

like renegade retro riders
suspicious dirty liars
once every now and then
well don't make me count to ten

summer nights and the heat dies down
cool air we're city bound
we all explode with sound
oh yeah we're rolling

but when the sun comes out
gonna see it's all about
between the lost and found
yeah you'll be glowing

cause ooh, you make me feel like a natural
ohh you make me feel like we're casual

oh they said it's not like the first time,
last time, best time, worst time, it's alright
oh she says it's not like the first time,
last time, best time, worst time, it's alright

slow down you hit the streets
where nobody ponders sleep
got everything you need
oh well at least it seems

but when the sun comes out
it'll burn the city down
so high you touch the ground
yeah we'll be glowing

cause ooh, you make me feel so irrational
ohh you make me feel like we're casual

and oh she said it's not like the first time,
last time, best time, worst time, it's alright

oh they said it's not like the first time,
last time, best time, worst time, it's alright
oh she says it's not like the first time,
last time, best time, worst time, it's alright
Track Name: Tearing It Up
oh when it goes, goes
we're shaking it off, shaking if off
and you know, you know
we're letting it go, tearing it up oh oh

oh darling i
can't think of what to say you
caught my eye
between a melody
a warm goodbye
so much that i could hardly sleep

oh, oh, oh

now memories
find a way to make it so it's
hard to breathe
like an exotic dream
haphazardly
neither up or down, well so to speak

oh when, oh when, oh when it goes, goes
we're shaking it off, shaking if off
and you know, you know
we're letting it go, tearing it up oh oh

now namaste
yeah you tried so hard to make a
get away
oh now it seems that
you just never stay
same kind of trick you pull on me

oh oh oh

but even though
hate to say you mighta been so
wonderful
don't go to bed feeling terminal
there's always something you won't see

oh when, and then, and then it goes, goes
we're shaking it off, shaking if off
and you know, you know
we're letting it go, tearing it up oh oh

oh when you go, go
i'm shaking it off, shaking if off
and you know, know
i'm letting it go, tearing it up

oh when it goes, goes

and you know, know
we're letting it go, tearing it up oh oh

oh i'll try, i'll try
she said, stand by
'cause sometimes, i find

i just don't, want to stay now

oh i wait in line, so quickly lock eyes
we suddenly feel, like top secret spies
the moment has gone, well what did they say

shallow, first glance
oddly, entranced

well i just, wanna stay now
and you won't understand how, oh no

oh i wait in line, so quickly lock eyes
we suddenly feel, like top secret spies
the moment has gone, well what did they say
now i'm moving on, but you gotta wait

the moment has gone, well what did they say
now i'm moving on, but you gotta stay

the moment has gone, well what did they say
now i'm moving on, but you gotta wait
Track Name: Danger Eyes
oh did you make it up, did you say enough
to convince me, you're not leaving, leaving

that you needed, if you need it, need it

well i can't lie, you're hypnotizing
danger eyes, you hypnotize me
i can't lie, you're hypnotizing
danger eyes, you hypnotize me, oh

oh now here we are, back on the other side
can you feel it, like i feel it, feel it
oh why don't you, t-t-t-tell me why
you conceal it, why don't you steal it, steal it

danger eyes, you hypnotize me, oh
Track Name: On the Run
meet me down by the waterside
we'll sink out like the capital
on the run from a firefight
pillars fall like dominoes

but oh, i don't know
if we could

find a place then we could stay the night
wide awake through all the city lights

fading slow while our thoughts collide
we think more erratical
on the run, catching fireflies
we grow cold, like animals

but oh, i don't know
if we could

find a place then we could stay the night
wide awake through all the city lights
find a place to keep us safe and warm
hide away until the city's gone
Track Name: Overboard
oh now tell me quick before we leave
oh that everything, well it just don't mean what it seems
cause i don't care just what you believe

but you'll be here when the morning comes, i don't know, i don't know
oh no, don't you write me off, oh don't let me go

overboard
overboard
overboard
overboard

oh now show me what's hidden up your sleeve
cause all of this, well it just don't mean nothing
and you'll go meet me out, out on the balcony
say let's celebrate, when you know we're doomed to repeat

Prechorus
cause oh my darling loves me so, she don't know, i don't know
whatever you do, please don't throw, oh don't make me go

overboard
overboard
overboard
overboard

ah but ooo comme si or comme sa

ooo comme ci if you say so
oh i won't ever let you go

yeah i won't ever let you go

overboard

Track Name: Dayglow (Why Can't We Stay)
oh we fell in love, next to the fire
she feels alive, cause he's such a liar
we'll dive down head first, into the fault line
now we kiss so slow, under the streetlight

but oh, she said
why can't we stay, why can't we stay
oh, he said
why can't we stay, why can't we stay

oh we fell in love, next to the fire
(she feels alive, cause he's such a liar)
we'll dive down head first, into the fault line
(now we kiss so slow, under the streetlight)

so let's orbit close, covered in dayglow
(walking around, all covered in dayglow)
we spend out lives, sinking in quicksand
(limited time, let's write in the cement)

but oh, she said
why can't we stay, why can't we stay
oh, he said
why can't we stay, why can't we stay

oh we fell in love, next to the fire
why can't we stay, why can't we stay
we'll dive down head first, into the fault line
why can't we stay, why can't we stay

so let's orbit close, covered in dayglow
why can't we stay, why can't we stay
we spend out lives, sinking in quicksand
why can't we stay, why can't we stay
Track Name: Tells Me So
i'd like to say what it is, but i just don't know
oh oh, she says, she tells me so
well if the goal is to feel indestructible
oh i'm not sure, just don't let go
well lover don't, no i won't stop your orbital
oh now, you say you want it all

i think we're lost in the world, now we had enough
oh oh, they said well that's just tough
a call so close for someone who just can't grow up
fall out of love forget it all

in the morning, yeah, i know
i've been waiting a long, long time
i just wanted to let you know
oh she says, she tells me so

you need some time to decide what to call your home
my feet cross yours, we seem so small
oh lover don't, i won't stop your orbital
oh now, you say you want it all

in the morning, yeah, i know
i've been waiting a long, long time
i just wanted to let you know
oh she says, she tells me so
