Tragedy 03:16 video
shallow, shallow skin moves like the mountains carried away steady the darkness a garden of forgiveness that’s all we know some memories we carry inside oh tragedy my cross to bare a tragedy a prayer woven like the waters that flow below all dead things we bury inside


With enchanting and dreamy darkness, Brass Box takes listeners on a journey through the beauty and darkness that bubbles and swells beneath the surface of ordinary life.

The band was formed by Ammo Bankoff, who, with a completed demo, summoned longtime friend Neil Popkin to join her after a late night encounter at a local bar. The duo originally met several years prior at an underground party in Los Angeles where Ammo's bands (Tête, Black Flamingo) occasionally shared bills with Neil’s bands (War Tapes, Rituals).

Neil brought in guitarist Matt Bennett (War Tapes) and drummer Pablo Amador (Rituals) to round out Brass Box's lineup. Since joining forces, the quartet has garnered a much deserved reputation for creating some of the most uniquely beautiful and lush confluences of melody and noise.

Dune Altar is proud to release the first of a series of releases from Brass Box!

Brass Box Los Angeles, California

Enveloped in a tapestry of glimmering ruby currents, the harmonious spirit of Brass Box tugs at the heartstrings we all possess. It is an ominous ocean of spoken dreams, glassy reverberating strings and thumping percussive hips.
