The Whitest Boy Alive


When it comes to chill, provocative tunes, Kings of Convenience have few peers. The duo simply have a knack for writing infectiously hip and flowing songs. Erlend Oye (1/2 of the Kings) is the Whitest Boy Alive, a delightful little side project that takes a few more risks (occasionally bordering on Minus the Bear-esque rhythms) and has a different sonic approach to songwriting. Gone are the dueling acoustics, the continuous double harmonies, the violins. Remaining are the toe-tapping hi-hats and the smooth voice of Oye, both enough to carry this album to a special place.
