Samaris - One Little Indian signs Icelandic wunderkind

24 Apr 2013

An unusual combination of a clarinet (脕slaug R煤n Magn煤sd贸ttir), electronics (脼贸r冒ur K谩ri Stein镁贸rsson) and J贸fr铆冒ur 脕kad贸ttir鈥檚 distinctive vocal, Samaris are 鈥楿nlike much else you鈥檒l hear coming out of Iceland right now.鈥 (The Line Of Best Fit)

鈥楽amaris specialise in gorgeous, haunting nocturnes鈥
(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 鈥 an ethereal sound filled with dark spaces and alien atmosphere.

As an introduction, One Little Indian will release 鈥楽amaris鈥 鈥 a deluxe double vinyl (and cd/ dl) combining their 鈥楬lj贸ma 脼煤鈥 and 鈥楽tofnar falla鈥 EPs 鈥 in July, ahead of a brand new album in the autumn.

Formed in January 2011, within months they had won both the Icelandic M煤s铆ktilraunir (past winners include the likes of Of Monsters and Men) and Kraumur Award.

Samaris play SONAR, Saturday, June 15th.
