Bio

Mandag 21. april 2008 slipper THE LIST albumet "... and now we've got nowhere to land". Bandet har vokst og det har også ambisjonene.

Da The list debuterte på platemarkedet våren 2006 med «Perfect EP» var det ment som et lite vorspiel til albumdebuten samme år. Slik skulle det ikke gå...

Etter et par turbulente år er den alternative countryrock-kvintetten endelig klar med fullengderen «...And Now We've Got Nowhere To Land» som gis ut på Stavangerlabelen CCAP. Mer rock, mindre americana og større selvtillit kjennertegner albumet hvor sterke melodier, mektige arrangementer og fengende refrenger står i sentrum.

Med på albumet har The List fått med seg lokale artister som Olav Larsen, Kjell Breivik og Inge Engelsvoll. Nashville-artisten og multitalentet Doug Hoekstra, som skryter uhemmet av The List på sin hjemmeside, har også bidratt med lyrikk og vokal på det transatlantiske samarbeidssporet «Things We Did (When We Where kids)».

Med sin første konsert i Stavanger gikk The List i 2004 til den lokale finalen i Zoom. Siden den gang har utskiftningene vært mange og «.. And Now We've Got Nowhere To Land» demonstrerer fire år senere et band mer selvsikkert og samspilt enn noen gang. Vokalist Runar Aase er tidligere blitt sammenlignet med Chris Isaak og Grant Lee Phillips av pressen, og med inspirasjon fra band som My Morning Jacket og Wilco har The List utviklet et eget sound som går fra det melankolske til det rocka uten å miste troverdigheten.

Strong melodies are what's thrusting The List and its lead singer Runar Aase into the Norwegian spotlight. Strong hooks and lyrics, not to mention its energetic melodies, is this band's calling card.

Whether The List played their first gig in local pub "Banken", or made their debut in norwegian rock-contest Zoom, is still highly debated. Either way it was back in 2004, and either way the band didn't really get going until realizing they actually had something going on, by reaching the local final of the very same contest.

Their debut album will hit the shelves early next year. The album with the working title “Debbie Does Music” will be a collection of indie/country-rock tunes, the album took a while in the making but the final result turned out great.
The idea behind the album was, in their words; “embracing the cruel twist and turns that life grant you, making the best out of nothing, losing track of time and forgoing love just to find it again”.

Contributing on the album is the critical acclaimed singer/songwriter Doug Hoekstra from Nashville; this is what he wrote on his website;

“We're also excited to report on the recent transatlantic musical collaboration between Doug Hoekstra and one of Norway's finest bands, The List. Last year, Doug was lucky enough to share a bill with them in Stavanger last autumn. He and the guys were having one of those glamorous green room backstage show biz conversations, when they brought up the idea of collaborating on a tune. "I'd be honored," he said (or words to that effect). So, this year, The List started recording and sent Doug a musical track sans vocals with some thematic ideas suggested. Hoekstra complied with lyrics and melodies, and after getting the go ahead from the band, recorded his vocals at David Henry's True Tone Recording in Nashville. Files were sent back to Norway and "Underneath a Sunday Morning Rain" will appear on The List's forthcoming CD. The guys said it was "vintage doug," but it sounds like "vintage list" to our ears, as well. And, we can't wait to hear the final mixed track and CD.”
