Vok Tension Final

Vök will release their Tension

The MuseBox Records today announced the signing of Iceland’s Vök . While the young trio and their dreamy electronica pop have held the attention of their native Icelandic press since 2013, international fans are now starting to take notice. This fall Vök will release”Tension,” their debut EP on The MuseBox Records. A tour of the United States in support of the record will follow. More information on Vök is available on the band’s official Facebook page.

Shortly after forming, Vök won an annual band contest, “Músíktilraunir,” which is the Icelandic version of a battle of the bands. The third member, guitarist Ólafur Alexander, joined the band shortly thereafter. Vök has since been generating significant hype in the vibrant music scene of Iceland’s capital, Reykjavík. With a sound mainly comprised of soft electronics and melodic vocals, guitar also plays a prominent role in Vök’s sound and places Vök a bit more in the realm of indie-electro, thus resulting in comparisons to Florence and the Machine, The XX, and The Knife.
