"Skin" by Vök

Icelandic trio Vök have shared their new “single Skin.” The track, follows recently released single and video Lost in the Weekend, which gave an early taste of their new material recorded last year in their Reykjavík studios. The song is also the follow-up to their 2019 album In the Dark, which was written and recorded by the band with producer James Earp (Bipolar Sunshine, Fickle Friends, Lewis).

Lead singer Margrét says; “Our character has been living by the standards of her community but feels like she is betraying herself. She is afraid of who she is becoming, as that person is someone that she doesn’t relate to, and she feels trapped and doesn’t know who or what she is – she is stuck in her own skin.”

Vök are Margrét Rán (vocals), Einar Stef (bass/guitar) and Bergur (drums).
