Oslo Ess – “Verden På Nakken, Venner I Ryggen”

Oslo Ess – “Verden På Nakken, Venner I Ryggen” (Indie Recordings)

If you thought that Norway only held out for Black Metal, then prepare yourselves for the Norsk punk rock of Oslo Ess! Mixing Rancid with The Clash and a hint of Bruce Springsteen, Oslo Ess have brought it home with heaps of heart pounding melody, teenage angst and fiery punk rock on this unbelievably catchy sophomore album! Initially formed as a band among friends, there’s also a down to earth, coming of age innocence that also touches my heart on catchy songs like ‘God Morgen’, ‘Caroline’ and ‘Tøffe Gutter’ that have seen Oslo Ess soar from their debut hitting the Top 40, being nominated for a Norwegian Grammy, and being the most booked band in 2011 – man, these guys are on a roll! Deffo one for the moment, this album captures the heart felt passions and euphoria that only come once in a life from losing your virginity to winning your first fight – and being on the road with your own rock band – yeah!
