Kings Of Convenience

Biography

Once upon a time there was a fearless Nordic duo, who waged war on the world with but two soft voices and two acoustic guitars. Their names were Eirik Glambek Boe and Erlend Oye, and like their Viking ancestors they crossed continents to bring their songs of love, heartache and life to the world beyond. Soon strange tales began to filter out of an odd pair, who'd met at an inter-schools geography contest as children (which Erlend won by drawing a map of the world freehand from memory) that had later reunited in song, well both in a gloomy rock band that did Joy Division covers called Skog (Norwegian for Tree) to be specific. Destiny however had other plans, and one holiday and a North African thunderstorm later; it was goodnight Skog as the Kings Of Convenience were born.
