Bergen, Norway-based indie-pop duo Kings of Convenience teamed singer/guitarist Erik Glambek Be and guitarist Erlend ye. After first earning notice thanks to a series of acclaimed European festival appearances during the summer of 1999, the twosome signed to American label Kindercore to issue their lovely eponymous debut the following spring. Quiet Is the New Loud was issued in early 2001on Astralwerks. The album used many of the same tracks from the Kindercore release but re-ordered them and replaced a few with newer songs. The remix album Versus followed later in the year and featured remixes by artists as diverse as Ladytron, {David Whitaker} and Four Tet. After a three year layoff during which ye recorded a solo album, 2003's Unrest, and gained some reknown as an electronica DJ while {Be} worked on finishing up his psychology degree, the pair teamed up again for the recording and release of 2004's excellent Riot on an Empty Street ~ Jason Ankeny, All Music Guide
