Admiral Fallow – “Beetle in the Box”

“Beetle in the Box” is a catchy song, with fairly simple instrumentation and straightforward drumming. The chorus is highly catchy, and the blend of male and female harmonies is lovely. Fans of accents will love the Scottish accent that comes through in their singing.
The gentle strumming and arpeggios of the guitar and the steady drums keep the song moving along, allowing the listener to easily sink into a groove. “Beetle in the Box” is one of those songs that functions as a great piece of background music, but also one with very well written lyrics, lyrics that are worth paying attention to.
Listen to the song yourself, and be on the lookout for the album’s release.
