Our buddies at The Line of Best Fit delight us with this dream-like live performance of Icelandic trio Samaris playing ‘Hafið’ from 2013’s Iceland Airwaves festival. Filmed in a room with Reykjavík’s mountains nestled beneath a gloomy sky, you can be certain to once again feel the “emotional landscapes” that Björk used to sing about.
The video is simple, nothing more than the band and their performance is actually needed as the trio charm from the moment vocalist Jófríður sings the first note. We know pretty well that Iceland has a lot of music treasures to offer, and this song is yet further confirmation.
Samaris’s new full-length Silkidrangar is due this May on One Little Indian. For now, enjoy their thrilling live performance!
