The Kings of Convenience are a Norwegian indie-pop duo whose third studio album, Declaration of Dependence, was released back in October. In my opinion, it’s one of the best records of 2009. On it, they remain true to their Quiet is the New Loud philosophy (the name of their first album) by showcasing the chemistry of their voices on their subtle melodic tracks. They have yet to announce all of their Spring 2010 tour dates but EV2BK has heard that they will play a show here in NYC at Webster Hall the day before Valentine’s day (2/13). For those of you making early plans to celebrate, tickets go on sale on Tuesday (1/12) at noon. To start your weekend on a mellow note, take a listen to one of my favorites from Declaration of Dependence, “Boat Behind”.
