TIME Magazine takes you on a global music expedition through eleven of the greatest international bands. Obviously, Samaris’ Icelandic poetry and ethereally gorgeous electronic sounds had to be included. Have a look at the full article here.
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. ‘Silkidrangar’ is the band’s much-anticipated second release following on from their debut self titled album released in the summer of 2013.
