Combining disparate elements of electronics
(Þórður Kári Steinþórsson, aka ‘Doddi’), clarinet (Áslaug Rún Magnúsdóttir) and
Jófríður Ákadóttir’s enchanting voice, Samaris mix glacial electronica and
bold, percussive beats with haunting chant-like vocals - the lyrics culled from
nineteenth century Icelandic poems. “You could say the words have been
delicately sewn together and in a way they already have their song, their own
melody when you read them” suggests Áslaug. The overall effect is
simultaneously ancient and modern – an ethereal sound filled with dark spaces
and alien atmosphere.
