Erlend Øye is a Norwegian musician from Bergen, best known as one half of the pop duo Kings of Convenience.
In 2003, while touring, Erlend Øye recorded his only solo album to date, Unrest.
Mesmerizing synth loops and premium beats, combined with Erlend’s smooth vocals make Unrest one of my favorite new discoveries.
Track highlights include: A sudden Rush, Prego Amore and Every Party.
Erlend Øye’s most recent project is The Whitest Boy Alive. The band originally started as an electronic group, but slowly developed into a band with no programmed elements. Erlend sings and plays guitar. Their album Dreams is fun and melancholic at the same time, a great listen.
