Erlend Øye is best-know for his work in a couple of groups, the possibly-broken-up Kings Of Convenience and the definitely-broken-up Whitest Boy Alive, but he’ll release his solo album Legao later this year, and we’ve already posted the early track “Fence Me In.” In Øye’s new video for the sophisticated, lushly funky solo song “Garota,” we see him visit Seoul and meet a lovely young lady, develop an attraction, and then get pulled away because he’s an international recording artist and he’s got shit to do. It’s all terribly romantic and beautifully photographed by director Michael Beech. We also see Øye play a stadium-size show in Seoul. Is Erlend Øye just crazy popular in South Korea? Because if he is, that’s awesome. The video is a good one, and you can watch it below.
Legaeo is out 10/3 on Bubbles Records.
