“cool electro-disco…with an overarching slick, late-’80s synth-pop feel” – BlackBook
“can make you feel warm and happy…shimmering synths & Margrét Rán’s gentle voice floating on top” – Magnetic Magazine
“Vök prefers a sneaky Maximalism…saxophone, synthesizers, backup vocals, harmonies, strange crashes” – The New York Times
“Led by the supremely talented Margrét Rán…gentle melodic muscle, so much excellent saxophone” – The Line of Best Fit
“the hype around Margrét Rán and co isn’t the result of any high school hangover but in fact completely justified.” – Clash
“Bold hip-hop percussion…slithering basslines recalling FKA twigs’ abstract R&B”
 – The Line of Best Fit
“Easy-listening songs that have unexpected, plunging depths.” – Consequence of Sound
“I don’t know what’s not to like…shivery, on-the-brink vocals, a sliver of sax…” – Noisey
“Meditative electronic music full of chilly, detached atmospherics” – Stereogum

Last month, Icelandic electronic dream-pop trio Vök announced that they are preparing to release their sophomore album in the spring of 2019. In anticipation, today they release a new music video for album single “Night and Day” via BlackBook. About the new visuals, frontwoman Margrét Rán comments: “We’ve never done an ‘old school’ band video and we thought we’d give it a try!”. Director Geoff McAuliffe also adds: “We feel that the video shows a glimpse of the essence of what the band is about, in the atmosphere of an 80’s TV studio type environment.”

The “Night and Day” music video follows the release of the synthy track last month alongside the album announcement with Magnetic Magazine, as well as the release of earlier single “Autopilot”, which was supported by key Spotify playlists including Indie Pop, New Music Friday UK, Indie Highlights, and Chilled Pop, and has already broken 500,000 streams in just a few weeks. The trio just made their U.S. debut with a string of tour dates in select cities promoted by Taste of Iceland and in partnership with WFUV and KEXP. Fans in Reykjavík can also catch them live tomorrow at Iceland Airwaves Festival at HARPA – FLÓI.
