Why do we like this?

It’s absolutely thrilling that Kings of Convenience is finally back on the radar with their first new album in 12 years, Peace or Love. It’s considerably more cheerful and warm than their previous offerings, and while their signature sound is much the same, the content and general emotion behind their music shows their growth and maturity over the last few years, both as a band and as individuals.

I’ve been a big fan of Kings of Convenience for a long time, and “Rocky Trail” is a prime example of the many reasons why. The lilting, acoustic guitar melodies and the gentle, layered, harmonic vocals create an easy-listening, bossa-nova inspired track that begs multiple replays.

It’s pared down and simple, the focus entirely on the music and the feel it inspires, rather than the typical verse-chorus-verse blueprint. This is encapsulated oh-so-sweetly in the music video, in which the band plays their acoustic instruments while wandering around a quirky, lovingly decorated, Scandinavian loft apartment, making breakfast while juggling avocados, watering plants, playing chess, dancing, and hanging out on the couch. It’s heartwarming and colorful — the arpeggios filled with texture and fun.

As the band’s first full-length release since 2009’s Declaration of Dependence, we’ve got a lot to look forward to if the first single is anything to go by.

The new album is out June 18 via EMI.

EMI moratorium fraud: Banks ask people to be alert

In a bid to warn customers against fraudsters who may attempt to exploit the EMI moratorium scheme, leading banks are reaching out to their customers to caution them against ‘EMI moratorium frauds’. Imposters may contact you to help postpone your EMI payments and request you to share OTP, CVV, password or PIN or any bank account details, warned banks.

Public sector banks extend EMI moratorium to customers

In a relief to customers, some public sector banks on Tuesday announced deferment of EMI (equated monthly instalment) payments on loans for three months following directions by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) which asked all lending institutions to allow three month moratorium on loan payments as the economy grapples with Covid-19 challenges.

Banks yet to act on EMI relief, spark confusion

With just two days left for the next EMI cycle to begin, most big lenders are unprepared to follow the Reserve Bank of India’s blanket order allowing borrowers to hold back from paying instalments for the month. Top lenders such as State Bank of India, HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank, Kotak Bank and Axis Bank have not activated any channel for customers to exercise an option.

Abc – All Of My Heart Lyrics

ABC
All Of My Heart Lyrics

Once upon a time when we were friends
I gave you my heart, the story ends
No happy ever after, now were friends

Wish upon a star if that might help
The stars collide if you decide
Wish upon a star if that might help

What’s it like to have loved and to lose her touch?
What’s it like to have loved and to lose that much?

Well I hope and I pray that maybe someday
You’ll walk in the room with my heart
Add and subtract but as a matter of fact
Now that you’re gone I still want you back
Remembering, surrendering
Remembering that part
All of my heart

Spilling up pink silk and coffee lace
You hook me up, I rendevouz at your place
Your lipstick and your lip gloss seals my fate

Sentimental powers might help you now
But skip the hearts and flowers, skip the ivory towers
You’ll be disappointed and I’ll lose a friend

No I won’t be told there’s a crock of gold at the end of the rainbow
Or that pleasure and pain, sunshine and rain might make this love grow

But I hope and I pray that maybe someday
You’ll walk in the room with my heart
Add and subtract but as a matter of fact
Now that you’re gone I still want you back
Remembering, surrendering
The kindest cut’s the cruelest part
All of my heart

Yes I hope and I pray that maybe someday
You’ll walk in the room with my heart
And I shrug and I say that maybe today
You’ll come home soon
Surrendering, remembering
Surrendering that part
All of my heart
All of my heart
All of my heart
All of my heart
All of my, all of my heart

All of my heart
All of my heart
All of my heart
