“Quiet is the new loud” is the famed motto of Bergen-duo Kings of Convenience – a slogan so accurate they even named their influential debut from 2001 after it. Ever since, they have remained true to the idea that small gestures can communicate big feelings. Music this minimalistic and stripped requires extraordinary songwriting and there’s no shortage in that department. Kings of Convenience’s almost whispered indie-folk is as sunny as it’s melancholic. As effortless as it is complex. After a 9-year hiatus, Kings of Convenience returned in 2021 with their long-awaited new album ‘Peace or Love’ and next summer we welcome them to Way Out West 2022.
