Review By Darren McIntyre

Cocktail Slippers are a 5 piece all-female rock band from Oslo, Norway initially formed in 2001 with the demise of the all-female outfit The Barbarellas. The girls have been fortunate to share the stage with the likes of Nancy Sinatra, Crowded House, Elvis Costello, The Strokes, Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen & Iggy & The Stooges, the girls have given us 5 studio albums and today they bring us their infectious rocking new single 123 which I will be reviewing for you today.

123 – A cool punchy snare drum beat oozes from the intro and is wrapped in a deep funky bassline that really lets this track open and soar. The sweet melodic vocals take this track onwards as the cool backing vocals flow effortlessly through the whole arrangement as the foot-stomping groove grabs a hold of us and lets the girls really get into the whole composition as they push forward and really give us what we came for, soulful melodic vocals wrapped in a shredding power riffed guitar salvo that has solid snare drum punches to get the rhythm section on the map. The punchy effort really builds and builds as this well-versed track catches us off guard as the girls really deliver musically with bells on that give it a certain go-go feel that is wrapped in energy-driven riffs with soulful vocals that have us reaching for the repeat button.
