Song Of The Week #4

I sat down long and hard for this one – this week’s earworms were quite numerous, ranging from Florence + The Machine all the way to Beirut. In the end I decided for:

Kings Of Convenience – I’d Rather Dance With You 

 I came across Kings Of Convenience quite by accident, actually. I had been searching for a Kings Of Leon song, and the auto-fill-thingy suggested ‘convenience’ instead of ‘leon’ (heaven knows why). I won’t say I was angry about that little typo though – Kings Of Convenience is really a superb group, and I was ultimately thankful for the discovery.

Hailing from Bergen, Norway, the band consists of Erlend Øye and Eirik  Bøe, both of whom have known each other since they were ten. ‘I’d Rather Dance With You’ is the eighth track on their second studio album Riot on an Empty Street, released in 2004.

Thank you once again, and enjoy!

    Thank you for the suggestion! Yes, I have heard this one before. Amazing, isn’t it? 5 guys, 1 guitar, the vocals – this is one darn-near perfect cover!

    Oh man, I LOVE Kings of Convenience to bits! Watched them ‘live’ in Singapore twice – 2006 and 2010. Had a chance to meet Erlend Oye post gig too. I was so so crazy over ALL their albums. 🙂
