Indietronic trio Vök – Andri Már, Margrét Rán, and Ólafur Alexander – take us in a sojourn to the glacial mountains of Sólheimajökull, Iceland for their new video “Waiting” where the trio march in the beat of its crystal-sounding arpeggio:

Escorted with echoes, Margrét’s croons almost feel like she’s exhaling through snow, but her vocals do not fall into the blur of synth fuzz and instead retain enough sharpness to keep us lyrically clenched. Despite its dreamy aura, “Waiting” employs a symmetric distance in its cadence, hindering the collision of rhythms and pulsing with more pop precision that opens a glassy soundscape to inhabit. Vök met through mutual friends and became a band in 2013 in Reykjavik. They debuted their first EP, Tension, back in 2014 and have received national accolades as well as fest lineups for their progressive synthpop. As of now, they are working on their debut LP and have some show dates coming up in Europe:

3/21 – The Lexington (London, UK) ***SOLD OUT

3/23 – Live at KEX Hostel (Reykjavik, Iceland)

8/20 – MS Dockville Festival (Hamburg, Germany)
