Samaris exclusive new mix on The Line Of Best Fit

24 Jul 2013

The Line Of Best Fit are hosting an exclusive 45 minute mix by Samaris which is available to download for free from their website here.

The Line Of Best Fit have also given a great review of Samaris’ self-titled debut album which is ready for release on Monday 29th July. The album was awarded an 8/10 by TLOBF’s Jack Enright and includes a fantastic in-depth review of what you can expect to hear from their debut album. To read the article 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. 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 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.


Samaris’ debut single ‘Góða Tungl’ is now available to purchase here.  The release includes the original song and two additional remixes by Stubborn Heart and Sei A.

The self-titled debut album is set for release on 29th July. Pre-order it
