Official press release:

October 14, 2008
: For Immediate Release :

Indie-rock buzz band EX NORWEGIAN’S refreshingly catchy sound is taking them to this year’s annual CMJ Music Marathon in New York City — mere months after their formation.

EX NORWEGIAN was formed by TRANSCENDENCE bassist Roger Houdaille in the summer of 2008 with the charming and mesmerizing to watch bassist Carolina Souto. Under the name FATHER BLOOPY they released the critically acclaimed Ginger, Baby album in 2007 which immediately grabbed the band a lot of attention due to the album’s fresh experimental approach. The change to their new Monty Python-inspired name was described as “a conceded effort towards a more focused identity and sound,” by Houdaille, adding “it worked too!”

The band released their debut single “Something Unreal” after being besieged by radio stations requesting copies of the track. The homespun-style music video for the song became a popular favorite on YouTube, receiving thousands of views within the first few days of its release.

With an upcoming vinyl 7″ for their second single, the addictive “Dance Trance Pants” hitting the street on October 28th, and their debut album scheduled for release in January 2009, EX NORWEGIAN is being touted as one the “bands to watch” playing at CMJ this year. Their slot is scheduled for Saturday, October 25th at Alphabet Lounge at 8 PM. Several other dates have also been added — up and down the east coast surrounding their CMJ appearance. Refer to the band’s website,, for show dates and times.
