Formed in late 2009 The Box Tiger is an indie rock band from the outskirts of Toronto Ontario. Although young, the band comes off as mature and well organized, while still maintaining heart, intensity, honesty and a sense of funess. Their sound is often referred to as being caught somewhere in between Broken Social Scene and Florence & The Machine, The Box Tiger manages to keep a DIY indie aura, while simultaneously creating pop sensible hooks that makes their music accessible to the masses. The Band consists of Sonia Sturino (Lead Vocals, Guitar), Glenn Tavas (Guitar, Vocals), Jesse Horvath (Drums), Massimo Decaro (Bass).

Cultivating a sound that achieves a balance between jangly indie-pop and moody Brit-rock while basking in the glow of the 80's, The Box Tiger combines catchy guitars, theatrical melodies and powerfully longing vocals with heart and intensity.
If you close your eyes, you'd think you were standing in the presence of Thao Nguyen, with those creamy vocals that fall on your ears and leave you more calm than when you came. And when you open them, you're left with a few new friends by the name of The Box Tiger

I’m not much of a tastemaker, but Vaughn, Ontario indie rock band The Box Tiger are going to be big. Broken Social Scene big. With only one EP to their name, they already own a recognizable sound, a bucketful of catchy hooks, and that uncanny ability to transform notebook poetry into inspiring art. Having already built up an enviable fanbase and live reputation
It’s nice to arrive at a rock show and for it to actually feel like a rock show, straight off the bat. This kind of legit vibe, which is actually quite hard to find, was being delivered by the four members of Toronto indie rock band The Box Tiger. Led by female vocalist Sonia Sturino, Box Tiger had my attention immediately. As I arrived at the El Mo, they were midway through their set as they on stage seeped in crimson, while laying down some grooves to match the powerful mood lighting.
It's the often booming, forceful vocals of Sonia Sturino that lead me to my ultimate conclusion though: fans of Florence + the Machine hold on to your hats.
