Vök Sign Record Deal With Nettwerk Records
February 16th, 2017 | News
Congratulations are in order! Champagne for everyone! Electronic pop four-piece Vök have signed a record deal and will join the international label Nettwerk, who’s current diverse roster of acts includes The Veils, Boxed In, Passenger, Hermitude, and Boy & Bear
The band have gained critical praise for their EPs “Tension” (2013), and Circles” (2015), the latter release being singled out by Noisey as “channelling the Beach soundtrack via 1980s synth pop and the modern sexiness of The Knife.” Vök will release their anticipated debut studio album in 2017, and plan to tour extensively as well. More details soon!
Named after the Icelandic word for ‘hole in the ice’, Vök is comprised of Margrét Rán (vox/guitar/keyboard), Andri Már (sax/synth), Ólafur Alexander (guitar/bass), and Einar Stef (drums/percussion). Formed in 2013 by Margrét and Andri, the group was initially conceived to enter the annual and highly coveted ‘Battle of the Bands-esque’ competition Músíktilraunir, which Vök subsequently won. Previously winners include prominent Icelandic artists Of Monsters and Men, and Samaris.
Some could say that their waiting is over…
