New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
"A love letter to classic rock 'n' roll-based pop" - Greg Healey, Shindig!
"I love it!" - Ian McCann, Record Collector
"Ex Norwegian is easily one of the best pop bands of all time..." - babysue Magazine
"...that special ability to shift gears from lofi to power rock without missing a beat." Kim Becker, Liquid [Hip]
"...a highly evolved version of Weezer." - Now This ROCKS!
Somehow, through cosmic forces and mystical hiccups, it's entirely possible you've been missing out on one of music's great treasures. Following a musical lineage of power pop greats from the 60's and 70's, as well as the unhinged genius of the likes of They Might Be Giants
and Squeeze, they have spent the last ten years cultivating a rabid fanbase and critical acclaim from publications worldwide. Over 25 tracks (15 on the vinyl edition), Something Unreal is a monolithic slab of glorious hooks and Michelle Grand's Debbie Harry-esque vocals trading blows with Roger
Houdaille's rabble-rousing tones - if this is the first time you've encountered them, a technicolour world awaits you.
Based in Miami Beach, Florida, Ex Norwegian (named, obviously, after the Monty Python sketch), have had an evolving cast of band members, with the odd exploding drummer and bassists lost at sea but throughout it all, prolific songwriter, Roger
Houdaille has remained. Something Unreal features fan favourites, Life and Making Deals, by turns swirling psych tempests and grandiose anthemic glam hurricanes.
