Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Samaris compiles their two Icelandic-released EPs, Hijóma þú (2011) and Stofnar falla (recorded at Sigur Rós' Sundlaugin studio with Gunnar Tynes of múm, 2012) and includes 4 remixes as detailed in the tracklisting.

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 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.
