Samaris: debut album and first UK show announced

09 May 2013

Etherial Icelanders Samaris’ first UK release comes in the shape of an eponymously-titled album on 29th July. The album, available to pre-order now, compiles their two Icelandic-released EPs, Hljóma Þú (2011) and Stofnar falla (recorded at Sigur Rós’ Sundlaugin studio with Gunnar Tynes of Múm, 2012) and includes 4 additional remixes.

A brand new album follows in the autumn.

Still in their teens, Samaris combine downtempo electronica and bold, percussive beats with haunting chant-like vocals - the lyrics culled from nineteenth century Icelandic poems. The result is simultaneously ancient and modern – an ethereal sound filled with dark spaces and alien atmosphere.

Formed in January 2011, within months they had won both the Icelandic Músíktilraunir (past winners include the likes of Of Monsters and Men) and Kraumur Award.

Pre-order Samaris from the OLI store here.

Samaris play their first UK show on 13th of June at Servant Jazz Quarters, London.
