PREMIERE: Vio – “Beaches”


Vio is a four-piece hailing from Mosfellsbær, Iceland. In 2014, the band won the Icelandic Music Experiments. The competition’s past winners include: Of Monsters And Men, Vök, Agent Fresco and Samaris. Then, the band would go on to see their debut album Dive in nominated as rock album of the year at the Icelandic Music Awards 2015. At the beginning of this year, the band released its EP Same Games. Now, the band is hard at work on more new music. And if the band’s past work is any previous indicator, we should expect big things from Vio. Luckily, we don’t have to wait too long to hear new music from the album. We’ve got a premiere of the new song, “Beaches”. Listen to it below.

Vio on the new song:

“Beaches” is the first single of an upcoming album. Vacation atmosphere with the feeling of a new dawn. Cool and casual verses open into a warm and uplifting chorus. Soundwaves of the beach.

Vio’s members include: Magnús Thorlacius (Guitar, Vocals), Páll Cecil Sævarsson (Drums), Yngvi Rafn Garðarsson Holm (Guitar), and Kári Guðmundsson (Bass).
