Vök (named after the Icelandic word for ‘hole in the ice’) are an electronic dream-pop band based in Reykjavík, initially formed by Margrét Rán (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Andri Mar (saxophone, synths) in 2013. Vök first gained recognition within months of forming when they won Iceland’s prestigious Músíktilraunir (‘Music Experiments’), a battle of the bands contest where past alumni winners include Mammút, Of Monsters And Men, and Samaris. Their triumph soon led to the recording and release of their debut EP ‘Tension’ through Icelandic label Record Records — to a slew of positive and glowing reviews.
April 2017 saw the release of their highly anticipated debut LP ‘Figure’ to critical acclaim. Produced by Jack Garrett collaborator Brett Cox, The Line of Best Fit hailed it a “brilliant debut album”. Vök latest headline tour saw them sell out numerous venues across Europe.
