Single Review... Islington Boys Club - Pristine / Plastic 16

Fresh out of East London you would be thought of them being another East London band trying to get big, but wait until you listen to this single. You may be surprised. I recently had one of their demos in my mixtape so I know that they are good!

Their d├ębut single Pristine / Plastic 16 is set for release on Monday 22 November 2010 (today) through Club.The.Mammoth, in association with Too Pure. Don’t delay buying it purely because this single is a limited edition of only 500 7″ vinyls.

The track starts off with crunching bad ass bass, little riffs and ace drumming. The vocals kick in and you fall in love with this indie-rock/electro band. The chorus is very uplifting and having it up loud you can't help but sing along to the lyrics. It then drops with a sweet riff and then slows and stops, songs over right? Nope, it then goes back into the chorus and gives you a final treat as the chorus is played.

Plastic 16:
Starts off with the drums and then the guitar and bass both kick in giving you a brilliant instrumental opening to the song. This song actually does sound like Bloc Party would of done, short bursts of riffs and amazing lyrics. With swoons of ooh ooh this track indeed is slower but none the less still as beautiful. I must applaud the production on this record because it is near-perfection! I especially love the chorus with the faster tempo giving you something to nod your head to. Yes, another banger!!
