Kings Of Convenience

Bergen, Norway-based indie pop duo Kings of Convenience teamed singer/guitarist Erik Glambek Bøe and guitarist Erlend Øye. After first earning notice thanks to a series of acclaimed European festival appearances during the summer of 1999, the twosome signed to American label Kindercore to issue their lovely eponymous debut the following spring. Quiet Is the New Loud was issued in early 2001 on Astralwerks. The album used many of the same tracks from the Kindercore release but reordered them and replaced a few with newer songs. The remix album Versus followed later in the year and featured remixes by artists as diverse as Ladytron, David Whitaker, and Four Tet. After a three-year layoff during which Øye recorded a solo album, 2003's Unrest, and gained some renown as an electronica DJ while Bøe worked on finishing up his psychology degree, the pair teamed up again for the recording and release of 2004's excellent Riot on an Empty Street. After a five-year break during which rumors of a breakup swirled around the duo, then were dispelled by a series of occasional concerts during 2007 and 2008, they returned with a new album in October of 2009. Declaration of Dependence was made up of songs written during that long break and retains all of the group's trademark sound. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

what kind of music is this
Silly, that's because Erlend Oye is the front man of the Whitest Boy Alive. I absolutely love these guys, they are the sound of my soul...how could they have known!! Had the chance to see Erlend Oye and the Whitest Boy Alive in Istanbul.... u n - f - i n g - b e l i e v a b l y good.

The voices sound so much like The Whitest Boy Alive!

The Kings of Convenience have become our favorite artist. Have got to see them in person when they tour the States again. Love watching the video "I'd Rather Dance With You". Thanks Pandora!
I get off from work at 9 sometimes and I always to switch it to their station that I have set up. Relaxs me and helps me unwind. Love it!
I agree with the earlier assessment of a modern day Simon and Garfunkel. They offer rich guitar sounds that are beautiful and contemplativ e . Thanks Pandora!

Modern day Simon and Garfunkel..g o r g e o u s
love love love these guys even better in person is that even possible .. i listen to them daily even have my co workers humming along.
Beautiful music to say the very least. I love these dudes. They always seem to do the trick and they catch me off guard when I think i'm in the mood for harder guitars. It's always a pleasant surprise though.

Nothing quite like the KOC. I can listen to their music again and again; very rare for me. Long live the Kings!

This band is so cool! They really make me happy!

These guys are so awesome.
"Gold in the Air of Summer" is a nice track. Good band.
Is there anything that Eriend Oye doesn't do? Seriously this guy has so many projects it's almost unbelievable . His Solo stuff, The Whitest Boy Alive, Kings of Convienence and even some singing work for Alex Coldkid's remix stuff. My god, i wish my music career was as successful as his.
They're really good. Nice sound.
I like the "Riot on an empty street" release. It is a just press play type of release. Very soothing, mellow arrangements . They actually have a few cuts on the record that really sound very close to early Simon and Garfunkel. Nice work.
I like the song "I don't know what I can save you from" Its nice.
Ooo im feeling this group
epvinueza9
Love their sound. Their songs are slow, smart, methodic... like a favorite soup that has been slowly brewing for hours...hear t y , comforting.. . a n d ultimately fulfilling.. .
I think these guys are incredible. They're voices are haunting and they're music sticks with me for days after i listen.
voodo_bob
Not a fan of the bands two albums, but their remix album "Versus" is a rare and incredible treat. Give Versus at least a listen before passing King of Convienence up.
prbonser
God these guys suck!!!
PRETTY Kool for The oLd-SchOOl
Failure is a really good song too.
FINALLY! I put id rather dance with you as a preferred song when i first got on Pandora almost 6 months ago, and they finally played it. the video is awesome too.
