Vio are the winners of the 2014 Icelandic Music Experiments (Músíktilraunir). Formed only three weeks before the contest, they started out as a semi-acoustic trio but soon evolved into a four piece alternative rock band with a broader soundscape. The same year Vio were nominated as Newcomer of the Year at the Icelandic Music Awards 2014. Their debut album “Dive in” was nominated as rock album of the year at the Icelandic Music Awards 2015.
Their music has been described as atmospheric rock/pop with a hint of shoegazing and jangly guitars. The EP “Same Games” was released 6th of January 2017.
