Winter is knocking and its that time again to sit back and spend some downtime.
Vok – Tension :
Shortly after forming, Vök won an annual band contest, “Músíktilraunir,” which is the Icelandic version of a battle of the bands. The third member, guitarist Ólafur Alexander, joined the band shortly thereafter. Vök has since been generating significant hype in the vibrant music scene of Iceland’s capital, Reykjavík.
With a sound mainly comprised of soft electronics and melodic vocals, guitar also plays a prominent role in Vök’s sound placing Vök a bit more in the realm of indie-electro, thus resulting in comparisons to Florence and the Machine, The XX, and The Knife.
