When some think about Iceland they think about cold climates, beautiful landscapes stretched around fjords and some damn happy folks. It is no surprise then that the electronic outfit Tonik Ensemble’s music resonates beauty, bliss and serenity. Their sound is similar to the dreamy soundscapes their Norwegian neighbors Röyksopp create. Today we have the pleasure of bringing some music from the group to your speakers with their single “Landscapes.” Landscapes is the lead single off the groups forthcoming album Snapshots out February 10th via Atomnation Records. This single features the smoky and cracked vocals of Tricky lead singer, Ragga Gisla. Complex instrumentation lends itself effortless to the ethereal and enchanting vibe the song produces. Take a seat, clear your mind and get lost in the landscapes that this Icelandic group paints so elegantly with their auditory brush. If you are digging the vibes, preorder their album here. If you are lucky enough to be near Iceland be sure to check out the Tonik Ensemble tomorrow at Eurosonic Noorderslag or Feb. 16th at Sonar Reykjavík where they are playing alongside Todd Terje, SBTRKT, Ryan Hemsworth, Jamie XX and more!
