Vök is an Icelandic electronic/pop band with Margrét Rán as a vocalist and Andri Már on sax and keys. After being enchanted by their music for a year, I finally got the chance to see them live. Even twice! First in Muziekgieterij, Maastricht and the day after in Gebr. De Nobel in Leiden. Although Muziekgieterij is a very nice location, the loud and drunk students ruined the concert a bit for me. It was hard to focus on the music. In Leiden the atmosphere was a lot better and I guess that’s why they did an encore.

‘Before’ is the first song that I heard from Vök and I fell in love with it instantly. The combination of the sax and Margrét’s delicate voice is just perfect. And this year the love grew even bigger with their latest single ‘Waiting’. Now waiting for a full album and hopefully more shows later this year.
