((Kings of Convenience)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

Kings of Convenience

Norwegian duo Kings of Convenience live by the mantra that quiet is the new loud. So much so that they named their first proper album just that. With hushed, harmonious vocals over gentle, acoustic guitars, their discography will fit nicely alongside your Iron and Wine CDs.

As the band has progressed, they have incorporated fuller arrangements using pianos and strings, and have even varied their pace from "slow" to "not as slow." Kings of Convenience are rainy day mood music that's only for those who don't need to go 100mph in order to rock out. This is restrained beauty.
