Where does Nokia's Amazing Everyday music come from?

We've been kind of enamored with Nokia's "Amazing Everyday" music since the day we first heard it. You know, the little pop-synth riff we've been exposed to on nearly all Lumia commercials. What we didn't know was those snippets come from a band called 'Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs' (awesome) and that the song was called "Garden".


Now, we're sure some of you did know this so please forgive our ignorance on the matter. But for those who were oblivious, clicking play on the above video will be an odd experience. Odd we say because to us it's like someone took Nokia's commercial music and made it into a pop-synth song, not the reverse. But perhaps we play with phones too much.

Either way, we like it and we think you'll like it too. Thanks, Arun3, for enlightening us!

Byzantium says:

Can somebody ID the song in this Windows Phone ad?

i can only say its amazing song specially the music

falcon304 says:

And here's the intrumental version for those of us who think those lyrics ruin this awesome tune.

Saljen says:

The song is definitely better without lyrics.

aravind4893 says:

Some resemblance?

CreepinJesus says:

Best band name ever.

Xavdog says:

Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs is the brainchild of Orlando Higginbottom and he's releasing his first album in May. I love Household Goods as well.

thuannguy says:

I tried the search for music feature of my WP7 device and it regconized the song with 20 seconds :-)

Arun3 says:

You are welcome ...Dan... Btw, the instrumental sounds better definitely...but nevertheless it's awesome!! I have it (the instumental) on my playlist.... :)
And great coverage of the CES!! Thanks for all the news!!

This is a good example of what happens when you give art young male students too many drugs!
I think the girls voice was ok, especially more towards the end. Guy should have kept quiet though.

vixez says:

They play it sometimes on the radio in Belgium ^^

rodneyej says:

I personally think the song sounds "to cute", but I'm going to be honest... As long as it sounds good to the majority, and works for marketing purposes, I'm all for it. All I care about is if it helps sell phones, and increases awareness,,,,, but I can't wait till its

weetigo says:

I've been using this as my ringtone since October :)

Residing says:

Ive had this as my ringtone since October as well, but on my N8!

thenet says:

hahaha terrible singing. Nokia background tunes makes it better to listen too. Never heard of this band group before.

djmikebrady says:

I just made a ringtone edit for anyone who hasn't already started using it - edited the intro and outro together for a nice clean exit!  Part of my "Ringtones that Don't Suck" collection. :)

Brilliant, thanks!

lycosman says:

Is it just me or is it 5 seconds too long for Windows Phone? x) Great job though.

djmikebrady says:

I thought we could have up to 40 seconds?  Guess I need to verify that it works, and if not, do another round of slice 'n' dice on it... :)

cleverclogs says:

Ringtones for WP need to be less than 1 mb :(

djmikebrady says:

ok... I had already uploaded a <1 Mb version to the ringtones forum here, I'll update my soundcloud library to use that one.
In the meantime, here's the one in the forums, which is under 1MB.

djmikebrady says:

The SoundCloud file has been updated, and tested.  Ring on!

Jay Bennett says:

Ah that's why we recognised it! They played this at the Deadmau5 event in London!
