Samaris Announced To Play Iceland Airwaves 2014

29 Jan 2014

Samaris are among the first 17 artists announced to play at Iceland Airwaves 2014. The festival, which takes place in Reykjavík, has seen Samaris become regulars at the festival having played sets every year since 2011. Other confirmed acts include Flaming Lips, East India Youth, La Femme plus more. Iceland Airwaves will kick off another music-packed weekend between Nov 05 - Nov 09. For more information click here

Combining disparate elements of electronics (Þórður Kári Steinþórsson), clarinet (Áslaug Rún Magnúsdóttir) and Jófríður Ákadóttir’s 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 Músíktilraunir (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 Jófríður also performs with her sister Ásthildur in the more folk-inclined Pascal Pinion.

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