2005 SXSW Flashback: Kings Of Convenience

Wendy Geller

If you're following the annual South By Southwest Festival and impressed by the amazing music coming out of Austin this year, we're sure you'll enjoy looking back at some of the standout performances Yahoo! Music shot during our many past rock 'n' roll pilgrimages to Texas.

Norwegian duo Kings of Convenience called up adjectives such as "lovely," "beautiful," and "delicate" with their first forays into the indie-pop world. However, after 2001's remix album Versus, the pair took an extended break, leading their fans to lament when they'd be back on the scene. Luckily, by 2004, KoC returned with the stunning Riot On An Empty Street, which included the track "Cayman Islands"--seen performed here at 2005's SXSW.
