Samaris - One Little Indian signs Icelandic wunderkind

24 Apr 2013

An unusual combination of a clarinet (Áslaug Rún Magnúsdóttir), electronics (Þórður Kári Steinþórsson) and Jófríður Ákadóttir’s distinctive vocal, Samaris are ‘Unlike much else you’ll hear coming out of Iceland right now.’ (The Line Of Best Fit)

‘Samaris specialise in gorgeous, haunting nocturnes’
(Drowned In Sound)

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.

As an introduction, One Little Indian will release ‘Samaris’ – a deluxe double vinyl (and cd/ dl) combining their ‘Hljóma Þú’ and ‘Stofnar falla’ EPs – in July, ahead of a brand new album in the autumn.

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.

Samaris play SONAR, Saturday, June 15th.

Watch the video for ‘Goda Tungl’ below.
