Iceland – with no McDonald's anywhere and yet the highest consumption of Coca-Cola per capita -- is a mystical place. There are no polar bears. And most of the population believes in elves. It's also the birthplace of Samaris whose members have settled from Berlin to The Hague. Unsure what language to record in, the trio first laid down gibberish while writing the melodies, then quickly settled on English. While on a high from 24 hours of daylight, Samaris came up with the hypnotic "Wanted 2 Say."
