Samaris Samaris on Limited Edition Colored 2LP + Download

First Pressing on Colored Vinyl

Colored Copies Are Limited / Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available

Icelandic teenage wunderkind Samaris' first US release comes in the shape of an eponymously-titled album compiling their two Icelandic-released EPs, Hljóma Þú (2011) and Stofnar falla (recorded at Sigur Rós' Sundlaugin studio with Gunnar Tynes of múm, 2012) and includes 4 additional remixes.

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 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. Also includes digital download.

"Samaris specialize in gorgeous, haunting nocturnes." - Drowned In Sound

"Serious talent and vision." - NPR
