For those familiar with the work of Icelandic trio Samaris, their new single will confound and surprise. ‘Wanted 2 Say’ is not only a restless beat laden drum and bass inspired gem but its their first track to my knowledge to be sung by Jófríður Ákadóttir completely in English. According to their press release, each member is now based in separate cities, Ákadóttir roaming, Áslaug Rún Magnúsdóttir studying music at The Hague  and Þórður Kári Steinþórsson immersing himself in the electronic scene in Berlin. With that ‘Wanted 2 Say’ probably shouldn’t be a surprise at all. Listen below. It sees release physically on 12″ vinyl April 8 on One Little Indian.
