Samaris: Viltu Vitrast single and Ja Ja Ja tonight

26 Sep 2013

Samaris’ forthcoming single Viltu Vitrast is available to stream now on Soundcloud and Hypemachine. The single is released on October 7th and the band play Ja Ja Ja at The Lexington in London tonight.

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. 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 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.

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