Today is the day! Vök’s first full album “Figure” is finally there.
Vök’s history started with Margrét Rán (vocals/guitar/keyboard) and Andri Már (sax/synth) in early 2013 by competing at the “Battle of the Bands-esque” competition Músíktilraunir in Iceland, which they won (Previously winners were: Mammút, Of Monsters and Men, Samaris). Ólafur Alexander (guitar/bass) joined the duo in summer 2013 and Einar Stef (drums/percussion) completed the bunch in 2016. After their two EPs “Tension” (2013) and “Circles” (2015) and also signing a record deal with Nettwerk Records this Febuary, Vök is starting a new chapter.
With “Show me” and “Breaking Bones” we already got a little glimpse of what to expect of the new record. And what can I say? They didn’t disappoint in the slightest.

Size does matter. And in case of concerts, it’s the other way round as you usually interpret these words. So the smaller the better. I love those intimate club concerts without big stage and distance to the artists and therefore I was really keen on yesterday’s appearance of Icelandic rising electronic stars Vök who stopped by in Musik & […]
After all that shitty weather at the beginning of the year in Berlin it’s finally worth it to crawl out of your shack: some mind blowing Icelandic artists will perform in Musik & Frieden club in March!
First night of Sónar Reykjavík already went down in history! And though it started surprisingly unobtrusively, it ended with a big bang of joy and glitter. But step by step.
