Kings of Convenience: first North American tour in 5 years

Norway’s Kings Of Convenience will embark on their first North American tour in 5 years, in support of their acclaimed album, Declaration Of Dependence. Renowned for their captivating live shows, the duo of Erlend Øye and Eirik Gambek Boe play a unique brand of atmospheric acoustic pop, mixing gorgeous harmonies, gentle bossa nova inflections and incisive lyrics into an unforgettable night of music.

Here’s what critics have said of their new album and recent New York date:

‘Norway’s answer to Simon and Garfunkel, Kings Of Convenience pick their acoustic guitars and gently, wistfully and often revealingly about love. The duo stays quiet and tuneful on its third album Declaration Of Dependence’ -The New York Times

‘Kings Of Convenience summon silence. Bowery Ballroom was thoroughly hushed for KoC’s first NYC show in ages last night, a palpable silence perfect for hearing every note of the Norwegian duo’s forthcoming LP’ –Stereogum

‘…the pair pulled out all the stops for New York’s Bowery Ballroom with a bare-bones set filled with witty banter. The anxious, sold-out crowd hung on every word’ -AOL/Spinner.com

‘the most durable, rewarding Kings of Convenience album yet…probably the best new full-length of its style you’ll hear this year’ (7.9 out of 10) -Pitchfork

“atmospheric folk-pop to soothe the soul” – Billboard
