Cobra Starship - Hot Mess
- Chris Cope
- 17 February 2010
This latest offering from New York electro boppers Cobra Starship features some pretty disposable tracks, like the lacklustre ‘Fold Your Hands Child’ (a nod to the album of the same name by Scots twee-heroes, Belle & Sebastian) but when they step it up, it is potent stuff.
Soon-to-be club classic ‘Good Girls Go Bad’ is sugar sweet but instantly memorable, whilst the Fall Out Boy cameo’d ‘You’re Not In On The Joke’ (Patrick Stump and Pete Wentz lend backing vocals) is funk delectability. Taken with a little pinch of salt, Hot Mess is worth the wait.
