Kings of Convenience. Album Declaration of Dependence. Riot on an Empty Street Lyrics. Why, why so quiet Oh my mysterious country singer she asked My life (love), it's a riot I am climbing barricades in empty streets at night. When I'm down fighting shadows Twenty-five postcards in a box in my room Telephone conversations Gas slowly leaking out of a heart shaped balloon. It's a dangerous game That I'm not sure if I could keep playing for long It's a dangerous game It's a very fine line and if one step is wrong.

Riot on an Empty Street is the second album from Norwegian duo Kings of Convenience. It features two song collaborations with Canadian musician Feist.

Kings of Convenience is the mellow indie pop duo of Eirik Glambek Bøe and Erlend Øye. Riot on an Empty Street is their third major label album, and ended a three year layoff during which time Eirik was going to school for a psychology degree, and Erlend was becoming a popular electronica DJ in Germany. Both members were childhood friends in Norway. What this band is is beautifully crafted vocal harmonies. There is guitar and piano accompaniment, but the album (with a couple exceptions) lacks any percussion. Overall there is a much broader range of sounds on Riot on an Empty Street. From the most upbeat and peppy track "I'd Rather Dance With You" (probably their biggest hit), and driving "Misread", to the gentle ballads "Cayman Islands" and "Gold in the Air of Summer", to the fragile and longingness of "Homesick", there is a song for practically evey mood.

The video made for "I'd Rather Dance With You," the second single from the album, topped MTV's European list as the best music video of 2004. The album also featured contributions by Feist. In January 2008 the band played concerts in the Northern Norwegian cities of Tromsø, Svolvær and Bodø, and Swedish city Umeå along with a concert in August in Stockholm.
