Following on from 2014's Leipzig album, which showed Orka's more down-beat sound, Vað ups the pace. It was written in London and New York by project mainstay Jens L. Thomsen and former Dälek member Oktopus. Two tracks released from this record - "Dimmalætting" and "Grind" - see the Orka sound twisted into hardened, cathartic techno. Still based on homemade instruments, the sounds on Vað are largely broken up into samples. The music remains distinctively Orka while ushering in an exciting new twist in their sound. "I think that after several albums and tours I felt the need to make a record which had fewer elements which I could focus on and explore," says Thomsen. "On 'Grind' all sounds are either found sounds or samples from instruments I built myself. Other tracks like 'Dimmalætting' have synthesizers, but we have used them sparingly on the album."
