Vök have shared their new single “Headlights,” the track arrives with the announcement off the trio’s forthcoming self-titled album Vök, which will be released on 23rd September via Nettwerk. “”Headlights is an experimental pop summer anthem with an upbeat melody and candid lyrics about the exhilarating whirlwind that love can be”. Lead singer Margrét says;

“’Headlights’ is a track about falling in love and how it can be like speeding in a car without a steering wheel. It’s a song about falling for someone without meaning to and not understanding what is really happening. We felt that getting caught in someone’s headlights was a good analogy of this.”

Headlights follows recent singles Illuminating, Miss Confidence, Lose Control and Stadium alongside their EP Feeding on a Tragedy. Recorded in their Reykjavík studios, the EP was the follow-up to their acclaimed 2019 album In the Dark, which was written and recorded by the band in collaboration with producer James Earp (Bipolar Sunshine, Fickle Friends, Lewis Capaldi).

Their new album Vök, was self-produced by Margrét and Einar in Iceland, mastered by Glenn Schick (Phoebe Bridgers, Future) and mixed by David Wrench (Arlo Parks, Sampha) and Friðfinnur Oculus. \
