Product description

KINGS OF CONVENIENCE Quiet Is The New Loud (2001 US 12-track CD album includes the singles Winning A Battle Losing The War & Failure picture sleeve - still sealed in stickered shrinkwrap ASW29072)

Amazon.co.uk

Although Kings Of Convenience are keen to play down any blatantly self-evident similarities to Nick Drake, Simon and Garfunkel and Belle and Sebastian, the winsome and placidity favouring Norwegian duo of Erlend Oye and Eirik Glambek Boe have probably already got the subway buskers of tomorrow queuing up to lend an ear. Student-like in appearance (one of them has got a duffel coat and John Major specs) and unashamed to softly impart such non-rock lyrics as "put the kettle on" and "using The Guardian as a shield to cover my thighs against the rain", the weightless and airy acoustic guitar muse of Quiet Is The New Loud isn't a million miles from Radiohead's "Nice Dream" or Pink Floyd's "If" with a subliminal swish of bossa-nova rhythm. A contentedly purring cello, a plaintive touch of piano and the muffled sound of a trumpet adds necessary sonic depth and the results are as pleasant and civilised as a little light conversation over tea in the drawing room. But what a shame they chose to name themselves after a lavatory. --Kevin Maidment
