Just a few weeks I have featured Vök for the first time here at the fox, and now we are lucky to have them for a quick catch up and of course a mini mix. I hope you are as excited as I was, when I was about to hear it. It has definitely lived up to all of my expectations.
Please introduce Vök! How did you, guys, decide to join the Battle of the Bands competition?
It was the last day of registering for the competition and we don't know why but Margrét asked Andri, "hey should we participate" and that is all that was to it!
Do you remember your first live show together? How was it?
Our First live show was at that competition and it was pretty nerve-racking, but so much fun! We couldn't get enough!
If each of you could pick one all-time favorite track, what would it be?
It's so hard to decide one.. It would take us many months to find just a single one, we are all big fans of Universal Traveler by Air though so maybe that one.
Do you prefer playing festivals or smaller venues?
It's hard to say, we love the festival atmosphere but the intimacy of the small venues is so charming, it's different experiences.
What is the best thing a fan has ever said to you?
Margrét got proposed to in the middle of a show! That was pretty good!
What is one random thing that nobody knows about Vök?
We don't know if this is common knowledge or not, but "Before" was the first song we composed together.
Thanks for the interview!
Thanks for having us!
