Earmilkpremiered the single “In The Dark,”which frontwoman Margrét Rán explains “is about overcoming your fears and self doubts. I’ve always been a little bit afraid of the dark so I used that as a metaphor, like your trapped in a dark place and your mind is poisoning your thoughts by telling you that there’s something out there watching you. But the fact is that just in your head, our mind loves to playing tricks on us so you keep on being stuck in the loop of fighting your own thoughts. The only way to win is to get out there and stop hiding.”
In The Dark is an eleven track collection written and recorded by Margrét Rán and Einar Stef in collaboration with UK producer James Earp (Bipolar Sunshine, Fickle Friends, Lewis Capaldi).
The LP sees Vök exploring their pop sound even further than before, creating their most immediate sounding and most accessible album yet. Recorded in Vök’s home studio in Reykjavík and in Notting Hill, London in early 2018, each song on In the Dark has its own definable character or theme, from “Night & Day”’s obsession to “Autopilot”’s crushing disappointment.
