Combining disparate elements of electronics (脼贸r冒ur K谩ri Stein镁贸rsson), clarinet (脕slaug R煤n Magn煤sd贸ttir) and J贸fr铆冒ur 脕kad贸ttir鈥檚 haunting voice, Samaris mix glacial electronica and bold, percussive beats with haunting chant-like vocals - the lyrics culled from nineteenth century Icelandic poems.

Formed in 2011 in Reykjavik, within months Samaris had won both the Icelandic M煤s铆ktilraunir (past winners include the likes of Of Monsters and Men) and Kraumur Award. The band performed at Iceland Airwaves in 2011 and 2012, attracting the attention of Line Of Best Fit, Drowned In Sound and NPR amongst many others. Singer J贸fr铆冒ur also performs with her sister 脕sthildur in the more folk-inclined Pascal Pinion.

Samaris鈥 self-titled debut album and can be purchased from iTunes or our online store.
