Erland Oye is probably best known for his band Kings Of Convenience, who made waves a couple of years ago with their Quiet Is The New Loud album. He's also the plantitive voice behind Royksopp's Remind Me and Poor Leno and his first solo single sticks to this electro style.
Oye has one of those voices which, while not being particulary powerful, is utterly evocative. Just the delivery of the first line, "A sudden rush of expectation as I realise it's you" is enough to make the listener feel as if they've just fallen into the warmest bath imaginable. After a couple of listens, the aching chorus of "Why did you come at all? It wasn't for me" bounces round your head and refuses to leave.
Given the right exposure, Oye could easily become as big as Royksopp. Maybe some advertising agencies ought to take note?
