Unexpected but probably not entirely surprising news - they were long due for a comeback anyway - beloved Norwegian acoustic duo Kings of Convenience has returned. In 2009, they released "Declaration of Dependence," and that was the last we heard from them in terms of new music (officially, at least). Until this past week.
"Rocky Trail" is their new single off their upcoming album "Peace or Love" (which sounds very classic Kings of Convenience right out the gate) and it seems to pick up precisely where "Declaration of Dependence" dropped off. And it's a welcome return, a friendly track that sounds familiar and warm. For me personally, it's one of my standout tracks of this year thus far, but I was such a big fan of theirs for a long time, so I'm biased.
