Premiere: Boxed In and Formation team up for Speedy Wunderground single, ‘Running Out’

Boxed In and Formation team up for Speedy Wunderground single, ‘Running Out’

Track heralds a new Speedy compilation, documenting the first steps of producer Dan Carey’s label.

If you’re unfamiliar with the Speedy Wunderground ethos, here goes: Production extraordinare Dan Carey likes to cram together his favourite bands into his own South London studio for the day. Said bands have 24 hours to record a track in his smoke-filled, disorienting, instrument-stuffed space, and they’ll be lucky to have a snack in between sessions.

Carey’s project has been going for two years now, and the label will be releasing a new compilation (‘Speedy Wunderground - Year 2’) on 17th June, bringing together songs from Kate Tempest, Loyle Carner, Teleman and Peluché to name a few.

Next up in the collaboration stakes is Oli Bayston aka Boxed In, who combines with DIY’s favourite cowbell-banging duo Formation on new song ‘Running Out’. Apparently Will and Matt Ritson were given thirty minutes’ notice about their session, but they hitched a cab to Streatham without a second thought. In fitting form, the new track (streaming below) has the momentum of two acts sharing new ideas in a contained space, momentum on their side. The results are golden, shunning the ‘practise makes perfect’ ideal by putting faith in spur of the moment success.
