Samaris Exclusive 1993 Mix and Feature on Dazed Digital

08 Aug 2013

Samaris have been featured in a Dazed Digital article in which Sugarcubes legend¬†Einar √Ėrn¬†Benediktsson¬†describes their sound as “subtle melodies laced with poetry and¬†intricately woven songs”. The feature includes an exclusive mega mix of 1993 tracks that have influenced the shaping of the band’s sound. Listen to the playlist and check out the article here.

Combining disparate elements of electronics (√ě√≥r√įur K√°ri Stein√ĺ√≥rsson), clarinet (√Āslaug R√ļn Magn√ļsd√≥ttir) and J√≥fr√≠√įur √Ākad√≥ttir‚Äôs haunting voice, Samaris mix glacial electronica and bold, percussive beats with haunting chant-like vocals - the lyrics culled from nineteenth century Icelandic poems. Viltu Vitrast for example retells an Icelandic folk tale about villages who ask for help from a supernal being, but worry it will choose not to manifest its power on Earth. The effect is simultaneously ancient and modern - an ethereal sound filled with dark spaces and alien atmosphere.

Formed in 2011 in Reykjavik, within months Samaris had won both the Icelandic M√ļs√≠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.
