The Whitest Boy Alive in Kuala Lumpur

Have never heard of The Whitest Boy Alive ? Don’t worry, you’re not the only one. I had many friends who were asking who was this whitest boy alive and is he anything like that white boy in Powder; which is a 90’s movie for those of you who don’t know. Once I mentioned that it’s one half of Kings of Convenience; who brought the house down during their very first Kuala Lumpur show last year, only then did some of them go “Ahhhhhhh”.

The Whitest Boy Alive

The Whitest Boy Alive

The Whitest Boy Alive (TWBA) is three-fourths German and one-fourth Norwegian. Erlend Øye, the Norse quarter this musical pie, is better known as half of indie band duo Kings of Convenience (KOC). This time he sings again, yielding electric guitars and dancier tunes thanks to his mates from Deutschland: Marcin Öz on bass, Sebastian Maschat on drums and Daniel Nentwig on keyboards. What started off as a side project during a Berlin stint back in 2003 has evolved, now they tour the world showcasing their unique music style. TWBA is a little bit pop, a little bit rock, a little bit disco, but completely bound to get you feeling good and busting out those moves on the floor.

The Whitest Boy Alive Invades KL

 

The Whitest Boy AliveThe Whitest Boy Alive are coming to Kuala Lumpur. Last year we were lucky enough to have Kings Of Convenience stop by and with a sold-out show; it was one of the best intimate show of the year as Eirik and Erlend kept us mesmerised with their humorous yet enchanting performance.

This year there will be no Kings of Convenience but Erlend will be back with his other band, The Whitest Boy Alive.
Well, while Kings Of Convenience is not swinging by again, prolific Erlend Øye (one-half of the Kings Of Convenience) will be back in town with his other band, The Whitest Boy Alive. They started as an electronic dance music project in 2003 in Berlin, but have since slowly developed into a band with no programmed elements.

This is definitely one performance you wouldn’t want to miss; the early bird tickets end tomorrow so make sure to get yours ASAP to avoid dissapointment.
