Icelandic trio Samaris overcame great European distance to make their third album Black Lights, with the members split between The Hague, Berlin and assorted other locations. Hasn’t hindered them though: as well as bringing a touch of Berlin techno underpinning into the mix, they’ve also clarified their electronic pop ideas into something strong and catchy. On One Little Indian.

Icelandic trio Samaris now live all over the globe but have somehow convened to make some soft as feathers sultry electronic pop from their various lairs.   The opener ‘Wanted2Say’ is super sounding kind of like Air with Natasha Khan guesting on vocals. It has the perfect combination of bleeps, peaceful synths and gently pleading vocals to ensure my evocative pop allowance is filled to the brim for today. Singer Jófríður Ákadóttir  it has to be said sounds like Bjork especially on ‘Black Lights’ and even more so on the slow balladry of ‘Gradient Sky’. She has a more whispery voice that is a good fit placed within the slick beats but the more I listen to the album I can’t get over this Bjork thing  - can’t she sound just a bit different?   ‘T3mp0’ (I wish they would spell properly) has some nice low end bass which reaps some dividends in elevating this above the polite. It’s a nice listen, like a streamlined Bjork but despite lots of effort and several examples of oddball spelling I’ve not heard them outdo the lovely opening track.
