Ex Norwegian: “Count On Me”
Miami band Ex Norwegian are working on their upcoming Subtitled album. They have already released two great singles from the set, but they’ve taken a short break from working on the album to record “Count On Me,” a non-album single released for a special cause. Friend of the band and fellow Miami musician Yankel Guzman suffered a massive brain aneurysm last month and has had a number of surgeries since. All the proceeds from “Count On Me” will go to the Guzman family to aid with medical and rehabilitation costs. But more than just a good gesture, “Count On Me” is also a good song. Combining their melodic power-pop sensibilities with an ’80s new-wave gloss, “Count On Me” is a catchy, feel good song about being there for your friends. And even if the track won’t appear on Subtitled, it’s exciting to hear more music from Ex Norwegian.
