White Hot Cool

15 Mar

“Cool” by White Reaper is exactly what its title proclaims. Bursting with attitude and oozing parts garage rock, punk rock and a dash of surf pop, White Reaper manage to create a track that is on par with the Ramones covering “California Sun.”

The key to the success of this song pulling off a retro sound can be boiled down to its simplicity that is found in many punk rock classics. To some the lyrics may come off as repetitive but that is just what White Reaper seems to be aiming for. The tune also clocks in at under the three minute mark, just the right amount of time to digest this ditty.

The middle of the track has traces of a surf pop element with a fun instrumental that glues the whole song together and further enhances the throwback element of the song. After one listen, I guarantee “Cool” will be stuck in your head, and set your toes tapping.
