Among their many fans, Norway minimalists KINGS OF CONVENIENCE inspire the kind of fervent emotion usually reserved for deities.
For over a decade music lovers have been treated to the delicate beauty of Erlend Øye and Eirik Glambek Bøe. Debut Quiet Is The New Loud is a modern classic, and it was an agonising five year wait for their most recent release, 2009’s Declaration Of Dependence.
Described as ‘the Daft Punk of acoustic music (Drowned In Sound), the Kings are renowned for their live performance...'partly because of the undoubted loveliness of their songs and partly because the duo are, unexpectedly, hilarious on stage.' (The Guardian). Performing live as a five-piece, the band will bring their gorgeous songs to life.
'Kings of Convenience show was a total triumph. Everyone who was there had a smile on his/her face after the gig ended. BLOODBUZZED [Primavera review)
"As unexpected as the humour, singalongs, dancing and general bonhomie is, it never feels forced or cringeworthy. Though their songs are fragile tales of relationships on the brink, they're delivered in a way that makes them strangely life affirming. As the audience files out, there's a smile on every single face; that was surely the point. " MUSICOMH
