Box of Trash: “Here and Now” Single Review – side project hits strides

An initial side project of scrawled notes – now a fully formed brainchild – Box of Trash have started their journey into the world of frenetic rock ‘n’ roll with the release of their very first single, Here and Now.

Formally deriving from the Ayrshire lands in South-West Scotland, they have very much implanted their stamp firmly in the Scottish alternative music scene. While they are formally Scottish in descent, they have had a run-in with an agreed partnership with Thirdfire Records, which gave them an insurmountable opportunity to record their debut album across the pond in Chicago. Rock ‘n’ roll stardom abound, Here and Now is a first taster into the elusive works of Box of Trash, following the debut album set to be released next year in March. Despite their Scottish descent, they’ve charted every bit of an American journey – certainly in terms of their recording plans and even their name – but you can’t deny the sheer connection they’ve made with the classics of Brit-rock and it’s set to shake up music as we know it.

A post-psychedelic single that’s every bit of Brit-rock as The Stone Roses and New Order themselves, it’s set them in good stead to welcome a clambering of fans new and old.

A finely tuned dabbling to say the least, it’s a captive rock-bop that is destined for a bigger following.
