  2. Samaris - Brennur Stjarna by Samaris published on TZ Formed in Reykjavik during , within months Samaris had won both the Icelandic Músíktilraunir (past winners include the likes of Of Monsters and Men) and Kraumur Award.
  3. “Brennur Stjarna,” drenched in reverb, continues the mellow feel, and “Máninn Og Bróðir Hans” and “Hrafnar“ abstracts the whole enterprise, the latter with a distinct dub feel. “Þótt Hann Rigni” and “Hafið” return to more concrete songwriting, though a hint of the abstract still lingers, leading to the beatless /5(13).
  4. Samaris are from Reykjavík in Iceland and were formed in January They consist of clarinet player Áslaug Rún Magnúsdóttir, singer Jófríður Ákadóttir and musician Þórður Kári Steinþórsson.
  5. May 05,  · The sea is a recurring theme, first used as a metaphor on ‘Lífsins Ólgusjór’ (roughly: ‘Life’s Restless Sea’) - the off-kilter beats and aquatic synths evoke a troubled voyage, with Jófríður’s voice charting a determined course whilst Áslaug’s clarinet lines circle like creatures of the deep.
  6. History. After forming in January , Samaris entered and won the Icelandic Músíktilraunir competition. Steinþórsson also won the Keyboard/Programmer prize. Following this, the group self-released their Hljóma Þú () EP, which won the band an Icelandic Kraumur award. In August , Samaris took part in a Stage Europe Network event in The Netherlands which brought together.
  7. Combining disparate elements of electronics (Þórður Kári Steinþórsson, aka ‘Doddi’), clarinet (Áslaug Rún Magnúsdóttir) and Jófríður Ákadóttir’s enchanting voice, Samaris mix glacial electronica and bold, percussive beats with haunting chant-like vocals - the lyrics culled from nineteenth century Icelandic poems. “You could say the words have been delicately sewn.
  8. “Brennur Stjarna” (translated as “Stars Burn”) leads the pack as their sinuous and contemplative new single. The track is a breathtaking example of the band’s skill at seamlessly melding their individual contributions into a synchronous whole.
  9. The sparse and atmospheric nature of Samaris' sophomore album Silkidrangar lends itself beautifully to the mystical and fantastical nature of the three musicians behind its haunting and at times hypnotic, beat-driven sound. The trio are no doubt heavily inspired by the rugged and enchanting landscape of their homeland, Iceland, and equally inspired by the wealth of musical talent the country.
