World Radio Paris’ Jessica Brassington explores the city’s music scene on Paris Music Fix – a show full of interviews, music and a run down of the week’s best gigs. A graduate of University of Sheffield with an MA in modern history, Jessica has worked on several projects on cultural research in theater and film. Her radio experience includes broadcasting and production. As a journalist, she specializes in music, interviews and website content.

Special feature this week on electronica duo Vök with an interview after their concert last week at Le Point Ephémère. Vök was formed in January 2013 by singer Margrét Rán and saxophonist Andri Már. The band was formed to enter a annual band contest, “Músíktilraunir,” competition in Iceland. The problem: They didn’t actually have any songs to perform. Within a matter of weeks, Vök composed several tracks and performed them for the very first time at the band contest. And you guessed it … Vök won the competition. The duo became a trio at the start of the summer 2013 when they introduced guitarist Ólafur Alexander to the fold.
Subsequently they recorded and released the EP, ‘Tension’ via Icelandic indie label Record Records.

Described as dream-pop/indie-electro band their sound consists of dreamy electronics with melodic vocals, distant saxophones and clean reverberated guitars. Vök is easily placed in the realm of indie-electro, thus resulting in everyone from The Knife and The xx to Poliça and Phantogram, but their music is distinctly their own.
