The revival of WestCoast music began bubbling around the world in the late 90s and was in full throttle by the new Millenium. The Nordic countries have produced a lot of great NuCoast acts over the last two decades and the Norwegian Fords are one of the best. This duo from Norway, featuring keyboardist and singer Eric Enzo and guitarist Paul Call, released two solid albums, one in 2008 and their second, Somewhere Down the Road You’ll Listen in 2011, which was mixed by studio veteran Bill Schnee.
The opening track is a near-perfect pop song that encapsulates everything this band is about: tight production, witty lyrics, jazzy chords, and a big pop hook.
We’re down the road. It’s time to listen.
