A Classic Carol and love story between the mythical North and The City of Angels...that makes the listener feel both the frosty mountain skies combined and the Californian heat against the skin.
Musically the song is best described as an americana Christmas ballad. "To Stockholm from L.A." is the artists Anna Vild and Vargen's (translates as 'The Wolf') first collaboration as songwriting partners. Vargen is the stage and recording name of Swedish singer-songwriter Reine Johansson. Vargen received positive Reviews of the album "Tänk inte efter (Don't Think Twice - Bob Dylan in Swedish)", of which Indie Pulse Music Magazine (US) commented "A masterpiece of emotional and performance skill /...captures the emotion and draw of the original work in perfection". A&R Music Factory (UK) wrote of the single "Tomorrow is a Long Time": "Universally soothing /...more poignant than ever / Vargen reignite the timeless Classic.../ ...in Vargen's deft command the soundscape reached a new Plateau".
