In the 2010 film Going The Distance
, The Boxer Rebellion
serve as the opportunity Justin Long's character takes to leave his unfulfilling job at a record label in order to pursue his passion. The band continues to represent this passion with their third studio album, The Cold Still
. Though not forcefully dynamic, the album does an excellent job of portraying the more thoughtful, introspective side of rock. The Boxer Rebellion solidify their talent at transcending the crutch of catchy hooks, and rather, captivate with the power of vocal ability and instrumental melancholy.
