Erlend Oye - Sudden Rush




The track :Sudden Rush: was originally released back in early 2004, but OYE (hey in spanish)...the hipsters still redeem its place in the indie scene. Erlend Oye has that smooth melancholy yet quirky sensible voice that blends into his electro love songs. This music video on the other hand was directed by Jarvis Cocker - best known for fronting the band Pulp.

The charmful Norweigen first starting making songs with his bud Erik Glambek Boe as Kings of Convenience releasing Quiet Is the New Loud back in 2001. Erlend then pursued a musical career leading him to the creation Unrest which was released on Astralwerks in 2003- comprised of ten ambient dance songs recorded in ten cities with ten different collaborators like Royskopp fellow Norwegian-label-mates, Soviet from Brooklyn, Warp star Prefuse 73, Schneider TM, to mention a few. KOC came back with their more memorable release in 2004 Riot on an Empty Street with the pop ballad hit "I'd Rather Dance With You" . . .and "Surprise Ice".

These days Erlend Oye is being himself...and a DJ! ::whut whut:: Apparently spinning electronica and adding his own touch of vocals over the instrumentals. Get it, get it!
