Norway has always taken Mew very seriously and it’s still the only country (other than Denmark) where And the Glass Handed Kites was certified Gold. We already posted this highly positive Norwegian online review for No More Stories, but as the Danes played in Oslo (Øyafestivalen) yesterday, a bunch of interviews hit online. It’s reasonable to post separately about this majestic country that is Norway. If you understand the language, take a look at this interview from Side 2, this from Aftenbladet, this from ABC Nyheter, this from Musikknyheter, this from Dagsavisen and a video interview from VG Nett (there’s a drummer called Bo Madsen!?!).
For some reason, last night’s show for approximately 4500 people was not received very well from various Norwegian medias, look at the following links: Dagsavisen, VG Nett, Side 2, Dagbladet and NRK Lydverket. Maybe some locals could inform us what went wrong?
