Vok

FRIDAY 23RD MARCH 2018

Doors 7pm

Vök (named after the Icelandic word for ‘hole in the ice’) are an electronic
dream-pop band based in Reykjavík, initially formed by Margrét Rán (vocals,
guitar, keyboards), Andri Mar (saxophone, synths) in 2013. Vök first gained
recognition within months of forming when they won Iceland’s prestigious
Músíktilraunir (‘Music Experiments’), a battle of the bands contest where past
alumni winners include Mammút, Of Monsters And Men, and Samaris. Their
triumph soon led to the recording and release of their debut EP ‘Tension’
through Icelandic label Record Records -- to a slew of positive and glowing
reviews.
Soon after they became a four-piece with Ólafur Alexander (guitar, bass) and
Einar Stef (drums) joining the band -- they began to further mark themselves
out as rising innovators of smart, atmospheric jams on their second EP
‘Circles’. Hailed by Noisey as “channelling the Beach soundtrack via 1980s
synth pop and the modern sexiness of The Knife,” the Circles EP won them
even more positive praise and key tastemaker support.
After playing shows and festivals in Europe, winning many new fans along the
way with their brand of dreamy electronics with melodic vocals, the band soon
caught the attention of Nettwerk Music Group, who instantly signed them for
an international record deal. April 2017 saw the release of their highly
anticipated debut LP ‘Figure’ to critical acclaim. Produced by Jack Garrett
collaborator Brett Cox, The Line of Best Fit hailed it a "brilliant debut
album”. Vök latest headline tour saw them sell out numerous venues across
Europe.
