SAMARIS: ‘G贸冒a Tungl’ Sei A Remix Premiere on XLR8R

18 Jun 2013

The Sei A Remix of Samaris’ debut single ‘G贸冒a Tungl’ premieres and it’s happening on XLR8R.

鈥楪贸冒a Tungl鈥 is released 22nd July and includes this track as well as the original song and an additional remix by Stubborn Heart.

Download the remix and read the full article here.

Combining disparate elements of electronics (脼贸r冒ur K谩ri Stein镁贸rsson), clarinet (脕slaug R煤n Magn煤sd贸ttir) and J贸fr铆冒ur 脕kad贸ttir鈥檚 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煤s铆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.
