Erlend Oye


Our favorite nerd Erlend Oye’s song and video ‘Garota,’ clear the release for his new solo album.

Erlend Oye is our favorite type of nerd with a long list of accomplishments, such as turning Kings Of Convenience songs into timeless-life-soundtrack-fodder and achieving solo success with Whitest Boy Alive. However, his disappearance, after announcing a formal farewell to his last two projects, left quite the irreplaceable chamber in our hearts. 

But there is reason to rejoice once more, because the bespectacled talent has returned with a new song and video entitled ‘Garota,’ marking the release of his new album ‘Legao.’ With Ireland’s reggae group Hjalmar also in the mix, the Michael Beech directed video takes place in Seul and stars Koren actress Hana Lee. We love Erlend’s Far East obsession and welcome him back with open arms.
