about

Indie-rock buzz band Ex Norwegian formed in Miami in early 2008 and within less than a year found themselves charting on over one-hundred and forty college radio stations across the US, on the cover of City Link Magazine, and performing to a packed house at the CMJ Music Marathon in New York City. All based on the release of two singles, Something Unreal and Dance Trance Pants, from their debut full-length album on Dying Van Gogh Records called Standby. The album includes twelve tracks that highlight the band's love of classic power-pop ala T. Rex and The Kinks mixed with modern 80's retro pop such as The Killers -- creating an irresistibly catchy and unique sound that has music lovers, DJs, and critics across the nation raving about this 'amazing new band that came out of nowhere.'

Received #1 South Florida album of 2009 - City Link
Best Albums of 2009, Miami New Times

released February 25, 2009

about

Ex Norwegian Miami Beach

Not to be confused with EX HEX, EX COPS or X AMBASSADORS – EX NORWEGIAN is not a fly-by-night indie sensation; it’s more of an institution for irreverent, melodic, smart pop/rock

“Ex Norwegian is easily one of the best pop bands of all time...”

Track Name: Fujeira In My Dreams
Fujeira in my dreams
Fujeira in my dreams
We used to know
Remember how We used to know of every single place we go
Don’t you know

Fujeira in my dreams
Fujeira in my dreams
We used to live
Remember how we used to live all our lives so generously
You and me

But you know you can
Bury your head in the sand
But you got time baby, that’s your plan
Yeah

Fujeira in my dreams
Fujeira in my dreams
We used to live, laugh, love
We used to live, laugh, love and everything so generously
You and me,
Yeah!

Fujeira in my dreams
Fujeira in my dreams
Fujeira in my dreams
Track Name: Don't Bother
Be the first – they will follow
Sing the last – time will disappeared – here here
Loans are trust – they will hollow
Sigur Ros – my favorite this year… what year?
Awful noise – what! Why bother?
Kings of Queens … thanks but no thanks

CHORUS
Million miles away they celebrate your day
its good for shoes its good for me and me you
A Million miles away
You got it saved – no don’t bother
Gotta save, what maybe next year…what year?
Judges sigh, Estelle Lauder
Viacom sold out my rights this year… this year!
Awful deal – what! Why bother?
Kings of Queens … thanks but no thanks

REPEAT CHORUS
SOLO SECTION

Melt banana got no sugar, hey hey! (4x)
Track Name: Something Unreal
Something said in the bed has been overdue
but I just got a little scared ‘cuz I do when I look at you
I’ve been thinking ’bout you’ve been something unreal
But that’s not how I feel I’m not that lover

And you try oh you tried with your powdered eyes
But I just get a little scared ‘cuz I do when you come on through
I’ve been thinking ’bout you’ve been something unreal
But that’s not how you feel You’re not that lover, lover

And I say this to you…
You must look into your heart make a brand new start
‘cuz I just got a little scared ‘cuz it’s true this is déjà vu
I’ve been thinking ’bout you’ve been something unreal
But that’s not how I feel I’m not that lover

For what it’s worth, you look around see it go and I say, its OK

I’ve been thinking ’bout you’ve been something unreal But that’s not how I feel I’m not that lover
No, I’m not that lover
Track Name: Fresh Pit
You say you love me but you couldn’t wait
so you run back home to contemplate
walking round like some kind of date
its a same reaction – (just) a different time of day

you know your wrong but you convince me your right
as you plan your next move out tonight
you got it all, its just out of your sight
its the same old story –

Another way to lose
and everybody
sees what’s gotten you
Driving thru the night
and everybody
sees what they might

You’ve got a little but a little too late
you’ve got to run back home and contemplate
you got the time but you cannot wait
it’s the same old story

another way to lose
Track Name: Pow3rfull
The powerful united this world
You can’t say no
Even if you really wanted to
You can’t say no

The powerful united this world
You can say no
Even if your baby momma do
You can say no…

everything you want is true
until they tell you
you know that they want to
they wanna screw you

you keep hearing everythings a lie
that’s how they got you
but that’s how you vote too
that’s how they win you

everything they want is yours
they try to hurt you
you know that they want to
they wanna do you

they saying freedom isn’t free
no, it costs money
it costs our liberty
it costs you and me
Track Name: Sudeki Lover
The lights are low and yet, I see gloom in your face
we need to go somewhere
But you’ve seen everyplace, you need something unheard
lets go and find this space
Come and take a new affair
we need a change of pace
always hard to say goodbye
share my place within the stars
You mean more to me, than you could possibly know
I want you, come with me
But you’ve seen everywhere, you need something unheard
there’s nothing new (for you)
Funny how the days go by
we need a change of pace
always hard to say goodbye
share my place within the stars
Oh lover!!
We both need a change of pace
and what better a place,

To live, to love, to stay…
Laaa—la-ver
Track Name: Add Vice
Got no time to hold a hostage
Even less time to capture in betweens
When they said there was nothing left inside here
I couldn’t bear to part the look into your eye
I’m in love with you, Yes I’m in love with you,

Oh I’m in love with you

Patsy came to play my favorite song
Play it once more, trampled underfoot
Then the crash it meant every sight was out man
I couldn’t part to bare the look into your eye
I’m in love with you, Yes I’m in love with you,

Oh I’m in love with you…I’m in love with you

Just like a housewife who got bitten in the sand
We got out of it while we can
The contributions all end deep down in the ground
I think you should have saved some more

Celebrate all holidays we’ve earned yeah
Even tropics can’t rule this one out
Trying hard to get back where we started
I wouldn’t dare to call the shots at where we’re at
I’m in love with you, Yes I’m in love with you,

Oh I’m in love with you…I’m in love with you
Track Name: Gross You
Do you wanna know a secret?
Do you promise not to tell?
Everything is nice and rosy
I sure do wish you well

Everybody got their problems
You are mine and I am yours
Maybe together we can solve them
Oh, I don’t think so!

Do you want to know your future?
Do you promise not to tell?
Someday soon we’ll have to follow
I sure do with you well

Do you wanna know a secret?
Do you promise not to tell?
Everything is nice and rosy
Oh, I don’t think so!
Track Name: Dance Trance Pants
Dance dance dance on your motor car
You gotta trance trance trance no matter who you are
And if you really wanna something special
You better get up and really hustle
Do the dance dance dance away…

Cindy says shes got it made have you seen her car, have you seen it?
We’ll catch up maybe one day when we’re ready to get up drive away

She’s gotta dance dance dance on the window pane
You gotta trance trance trance, Tiesto had its day
If you really put your mind to it
You might as well just rearrange it
While you dance dance dance away

And we traveled very far from Rio de Janeiro to Nigeria
But we did not get our loans as promised by the bank we both know

They gotta dance dance dance on their window pane
You gotta trance trance trance, I heard it really pays
If you really put your mind to it
You might as well just rearrange it
While you dance dance dance
Away…oh you trance trance trance away

Dance dance dance dance dance dance dance
Dance dance dance away
Dance trance pants away

You gotta dance dance dance away
Dance dance dance away
Ah
Track Name: All Over Again
You’re not to blame
The worlds insane
Same change is happening
All over again
Same change is happening
All over again
All over again

They have no shame
It’s all a game
It’s so damn easy
To play the part
Try not to break apart
All over again

Where do you find your peace of mind?
Where did it go

Accept you’ll be free
Except you’ll be free
Accept you’ll be free
Except you’ll be free

Where to run?
Nowhere
Nowhere to hide

Same thing is happening
We never learn
Same change is happening
All over again
Is it the end?

All over again
All over
Accept you’ll be free
Except you’ll be free
Accept you’ll be free
Except you’ll be free
Track Name: Sad Wonder
sailor girl you know you got it
but it hurts so bad
sharing our promises you know
you can never have

you and aye you know we come from
very different worlds
hiding all the atlases you have
will make him mad, der now

don’t it make you sad der now
it make you want her
even bad er now now, don’t it make you sad

10 foot lead you know you got it
but the place to be
is sailing off into the seven
uncharted seas

oh you make me mad
saying those little something won’t
get you out today

don’t it make you sadder now
it make you wonder
what its all about now,

Track Name: My Name Is Paul
I live in my world which affect your world
the difference is mine is made up of lies
my names is Paul I believe my own lies
no liberal ties can bring me down

A pretty waterfall can break my back
if I want it to there’s no giving back
my name is Paul I’m ten foot tall
higher than the trees smarter than the breeze

These dreams are my reality yes you know
these dreams I will fight you for over and over
you know I can’t let go
And with you I’ve got some control
With you I’ve got a living soul!

Hello our new friend we can help you
If you understand what we wanna do
Well my name is Paul together we fall
faster than the leaves falling off the trees
