Ex Norwegian Unleash Fresh Summer Video

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.

Following a musical lineage of power pop greats from the ‘60s and ‘70s, 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.
