Kings of Convenience to perform in New York
Norwegian duo Kings of Convencience at the Bowery Ballroom in NYC on September 10.
Kings of Convenience is an indie pop duo from Bergen, Norway, consisting of Erlend Øye and Eirik Glambek Bøe, known for their delicate tunes, calming voices, and subtle guitar melodies.
“The album title?” says Erlend. “It’s obviously about me and Eirik. We want to give the idea of dependence a better name. Independence has been the thing for hundreds of years, but being dependent on someone is good. All the freedom we have enjoyed in the last few decades has left us with almost too many options. What we do together is very important for both of us – this is the most accomplished thing we both do. Dependence trims down life’s endless opportunities. When you’re in your 30s you want to make decisions that are set in stone. You want to accept how – and who – you are.”
