Today, indie electronic dream-pop trio Vök released the punchy, atmospheric title track to their upcoming sophomore album In The Dark,slated for release on March 1st via Nettwerk. Earmilkpremiered the single “In The Dark,”which frontwoman Margrét Rán explains “is about overcoming your fears and self doubts. I’ve always been a little bit afraid of the dark so I used that as a metaphor, like your trapped in a dark place and your mind is poisoning your thoughts by telling you that there’s something out there watching you. But the fact is that just in your head, our mind loves to playing tricks on us so you keep on being stuck in the loop of fighting your own thoughts. The only way to win is to get out there and stop hiding.”
“In The Dark” follows previous album singles “Erase You,” “Spend The Love”, “Night & Day”, and “Autopilot”, which have garnered over 1 million streamscollectively across platforms in just the past few weeks. The trio are on the heels of a string of highly successful live dates, including their U.S. debut with several concerts in select cities promoted by Taste of Iceland and in partnership with WFUV and KEXP, as well as their live performances at this year’s Iceland Airwaves Festival in Reykjavík.
