Samaris: Exclusive Premiere on Pulse Radio

10 Oct 2013

Pulse Radio hosted the exclusive premiere of ‘Viltu Vitrast (Ripperton Remix)’ by Samaris yesterday stating that the band are “taking story telling in the audio realm to the next level”. Check out the article here and listen to Viltu Vitrast (Ripperton Remix) below.

Samaris recently released their latest single ‘Viltu Vitrast’, taken from their eponymously-titled debut album. Download the track on iTunes here.

‘Viltu Vitrast’ retells an Icelandic folk tale about villagers who ask for help from a supernal being, but worry it will choose not to manifest its power on Earth. Combining simultaneously ancient and modern themes, Samaris creates a self-contained world filled with ethereal sounds, dark spaces and alien atmosphere.

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.

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. Singer Jófríður also performs with her sister Ásthildur in the more folk-inclined Pascal Pinion.

Samaris’ self-titled debut album is out now and can be purchased from iTunes or our online store.
