The Whitest Boy Alive is the band fronted by Erlend Oye from Kings Of Convenience. Following the rapturous success of their 2006’s debut album "Dreams", they return for 2009 with their follow up album "Rules". It's a little less indie pop and more inclined toward old-school lounge jazz than its predecessor, with cool, understated jams mixed with modern European electronics and perhaps a little more disco--sometimes even betraying a touch of house. The Whitest Boy Alive’s unique sound remains however, with Erlend's distinctive vocals and a spare stripped down feel throughout. Includes "1517", "High On The Heels", "Courage" and more!
