You know how it is when you’re driving about with your pal in some clapped out old Granada and suddenly a gorgeous hitch-hiker stops your car. It’s pretty annoying. Especially when you’re in the middle of singing a beautifully sun-drenched acoustic ditty taken from your third album, Declaration of Dependence. It’s even more annoying when another doe-eyed lovely stops your car 500 metres down the road, followed by another with a surf board. The annoyance levels smash through the roof, however, when another pale ingenue flags you down with a boat she’d like you to tow. This has never happened you say? Well, you’re clearly not the Kings of Convenience.
Ah, lovely. The song kind of tells the tale of their relationship of late, what with each of them going off and doing their own thing for a bit (“I could never belong to you”). We are very glad they’re back and have even been invited as special guests* to their Barbican gig tomorrow night.
*When we say “special guests” we mean “brought a ticket”, just to clarify.
