VÖK – FIGURE (Alt/Electro – Iceland)

Vök

Following two critically acclaimed EPs Tension (2013) and Circles (2015), Icelandic alternative electro band Vök will release their highly anticipated debut album Figure on April 28 via Nettwerk Records. Mostly written in their home studio and recorded with producer and Jack Garratt collaborator Brett Cox, the album sees the Reykjavík-based band taking their sound to new heights.

With influences ranging from from The Weeknd’s intimist RnB to Little Dragon‘s quirky electronica, Figure spans a whole spectrum of emotions and sounds, full of distorted pulses, near-whispered melodies, echoing guitars and dreamy hooks.

Vök took their time to deliver this first album but they are now ready to share it with their fans and the four-piece will be touring extensively throughout 2017 to bring it clubs and concert halls across Europe (Netherlands, Germany, Poland, France, UK and more).
