VARGEN RELEASES VIDEO FOR 'RECORDIA LIVE' CONCERT
In anticipation for his upcoming self-titled album, Vargen has released a studio session to experience the project early in a live setting.
With a full band backing his reminiscent and thought-provoking vocals, Vargen takes us on a journey of poignant soundscapes. His blend of gritty instrumentation, dynamic vocals and wistful lyricism brings forth a heartfelt reflection. Enticing the audience with each new track, Vargen is captivating and bewitching in his performances, controlling the feelings of the room with commanding stature and passionate vocals. Across the all-too-short 40-minute video, we are graced with both original music and Swedish translation covers of classic tracks by Mark Lanegan, Duke Garwood and Bob Dylan.
Vargen adds, “I wanted to make a story-telling album based on characters, dreams and loves - both made-up and non-fictional.
Our minds associate, connect and draw conclusions. It was when people, times, places – real or imagined – collide or combine that I found inspiration for many of the songs.
I don’t really know how it happens. It might be a dream that lingers. It might be a memory or feeling that changes in an instant if put in a new light. Sometimes it’s just plain fiction.”
