Audiences are getting their first preview of independent post roc band Var’s new EP this week.

The band premiered the live clip of its performance of its song ‘Where to Find You’ Tuesday through the online publication Under The Radar. The performance is featured in the band’s forthcoming live EP Live at Orgelsmidjan, which is scheduled for release Friday through Spartan Records.

Pre-saves for the four-song EP are open. The performances featured in the new EP were recorded at Orgelsmidjan, Iceland’s only pipe organ workshop. The workshop is the band’s practice space.

Front man Julius Bjorgvinsson talked about the EP’s pending release in a prepared statement.

“After releasing an album and having no chance to play it live, we felt like we had to do something to give people at least a little taste of us playing these songs live,” said Bjorgvinsson. “VAR has always been about playing live and we always give everything we have to make the tension between us and the audience both peaceful and powerful. But since we could not play it live for people, we decided to make these live videos of us playing the songs at the organ workshop where we practice. We got our producer Eiður to do the sound for the videos and when he sent us the audio files Arnór brought that idea of releasing a live EP, because people had been asking us to do so. We were happy with the sound Eiður got from the session and how far it is from how the album sounds. It’s powerful, it’s raw and it’s honest. And that is VAR.”

The track listing for Var’s new EP is noted below. The songs featured in the EP are live performances of songs featured in the band’s 2020 album The Never-Ending Year.
