DATAROCK's debut from 2005 was the start of one of Norway's most bizarre international carriers:

"DATAROCK DATAROCK" self released album ended up as #36 on NME's 50 albums of the year. It was even nominated for a Norwegian Grammy. Lead single "Computer Camp Love" came in as #88 among Rolling Stone Magazine's tracks of the year, and in Australia's the track came in as #12 on Triple J's Hottest 100 (with more than 600.000 people voting). "I Used to Dance With My Daddy" on the other hand ended up in EA games such as Need For Speed, FIFA Street & UEFA Euro. "Sex Me Up" was picked up for synchronizations like "Extreme Movie" ft. Michael Cera. "Princess" became the sound of campaigns for everything from Samsung to Ryanair, "Bulldozer" was films like "To Live & Ride in LA" - and "Fa Fa Fa" could be heard in everything from series like Workaholics & Vampire Diaries to films like Ace Ventura, games like FIFA, Sims, NHL & NBA Live, and ads for Apple, Google & Coca Cola.

Norway's weirdest band ended up playing more than a 1000 shows in their trademark red tracksuits & wraparound sunglasses - traveling to 36 countries on 5 continents and performing at everything from Jimmy Kimmel Live (twice) to Coachella (CA), WMC (Miami), SXSW (Austin), CMJ (NYC), Download (San Francisco), Detour (LA), Culture Collide (LA), Virgin Festival (Toronto), Festival International de Jazz de Montréal (Montreal), MX Beat (Mexico City), Planet Terra (Sao Paolo, Brazil), Personal Fest (Buenos Aires, Argentina), Lollapalooza (Santiago, Chile), Summer Sonic (Japan), Falls (Australia), Sónar (Spain), Hurricane (Germany), Hultsfred (Sweden), Roskilde (Denmark), Reading & Leeds (UK).

15 years later their debut will finally be available on vinyl as a limited edition orange 12" for Record Store Day April 18, 2020.
