The Band “Samaris” Is Havin Fun

samaris

The youngest of this bunch, Samaris are a trio of teenagers who blend woozy synths and electronics with live clarinet and vocals to create a dreamy mix of shoegaze, trip-hop, and indie dance. With its dark undertones, their music often comes across as an Icelandic answer to witch house, while also referencing of-the-moment touchstones like James Blake and Austra. Singer Jófríður Ákadóttir is also known for her role in Pascal Pinon, the decidedly more folksy act she formed with her twin sister Ásthildur, but from a live-performance perspective at least, she seems far more in her element in the electronic haze she’s creating here.
