WHITE OAK AND STUYVESANT - PLASTIC BOX

SELF RELEASED

2014

 

 

It’s so hard to review singles and as a rule that’s why we don’t at The Rockpit but Perth post-rock band White Oak and Stuyvesant is just one of those names that conjures up such a compelling image of cheap aftershave and cigarettes that you have to listen.  

 

The song ‘Plastic Box’ is also just one of those songs you have to comment on, and without seeing them live it’s hard to tell how representative it might be of the band itself. What you get here is almost four minutes of foot-stomping anthemic rock and it’s the sort of song (culled from their recent album sessions) that makes you thing this band could be huge despite their largely unpronounceable and  spellable name.  If you like your rock to gaze at the shoes and yet soar to the skies, with a nineties vibe and some great clean guitars and a neat hook, then  it’s a track well worth checking out and one that will have you eagerly anticipating a full-length release.
