Overview

On their second full-length album, Union, the Anglo-American band the Boxer Rebellion continue to sound like U2 as fronted by Radiohead's Thom Yorke. The British rhythm section of bassist Adam Harrison and drummer Piers Hewitt sets up simple, repetitive patterns for each track, over which Australian guitarist Todd Howe plays simple, shimmering sequences that fill up the sound picture. On top is American singer Nathan Nicholson, singing in a whiny tenor disconnected lyrics, usually directed at a "you" who seems to be an unhappy love interest, expressing charges of betrayal and the overall inadequacies of life. The songs tend to build in intensity, without the tension being broken until the end. It's easy to imagine this working in concert, even if, on disc, the relentlessness can be wearing.
