Icelandic trio Vök share new single & video ‘Lose Control’.
Vök have shared their bold, candid and euphoric new single and video Lose Control, which follows their recent release Stadium and is out now via Nettwerk Records.
Lose Control is a forward-thinking alt-pop song that incongruously blends a buoyant melody with profound lyrics. The track continues the personal story of lead singer Margrét, as told across the whole of the band’s recent EP, with the short film style
video portraying a character losing her grip on life and allowing the distraction of partying to give a false sense of security. Margrét says;
“Lose Control" was one of those songs that just came to me in an instant. It was so much fun writing it because I was stuck in a total fantasy world while creating it.
This song is originally just me fantasizing about my girlfriend. Being with a woman is an extraordinary thing.
But diving deeper into the story with Einar we found a bit of a darker road so we took it. It’s my ultimate lesbian appreciation song and may all of you sexual beings find it enjoyable.”
New track Lose Control and recent single Stadium follow recent singles Running Wild, No Coffee at the Funeral, Skin and Lost in the Weekend, all of which made up the band’s unique and lushly layered 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).
Vök continue to cement their position as one of the most exciting and forward-thinking alternative bands right now. Following two critically acclaimed albums, Feeding on a Tragedy marked the first new musical moment in an exciting new era for Vök with lots more still to come.
