Erlend Oye Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
The press release for 'Legao' refers to Erlend Øye as "a skinny nerd", which is one of the crueller hard sells we've had. In actuality, Øye is a musician who trades in chillout vibes, playing a low-key, funky kind of indie rock (listen to those palm-muted chords on "Garota", and those slick drum fills, and float away). Øye once played in indie pop outfit Kings of Convenience, and 'Legao' brings back all their hallmarks, including a hefty amount of swirling keys. Recommended for fans of Scandinavian indie pop like Jens Lekman.
