Record / IS
Vök was formed in January 2013 by singer Margrét Rán and saxophonist Andri Már.
The band was formed to enter an annual band contest, “Músíktilraunir,” in Iceland. The problem: They didn’t have any songs to perform. Within a matter of weeks, Vök composed several tracks and played them for the very first time at the band contest. And you guessed it Vök won the competition. The duo became a trio during summer 2013 when they introduced guitarist Ólafur Alexander to the fold. Subsequently, they recorded and released the EP, ‘Tension’ via Icelandic indie label Record Records.
Described as dream-pop/indie-electro band their sound consists of dreamy electronics with melodic vocals, distant saxophones and clean reverberated guitars. Vök is comfortably placed in the realm of indie-electro with music distinctly their own.
