Alex Vargas is one of the hottest exports from the cool north - the Danish songwriter, producer and singer captivates with rather reduced but touching "Cool Soul". His sound was titled "Noise Soul" by a friend, which describes Vargas goal to break through the classic genre boundaries much better. Starting in a more rock and pop band called Vagabond, Vargas soon decided to take the solo path in order to devote himself entirely to his musical vision.
Real feelings and a certain rawness are important to him and he wanted to be able to capture them himself. So the singer-songwriter started to produce his own songs and with the songs "Till Forever Runs Out" and the shatteringly beautiful "Solid Ground" the noise soul of Alex Vargas crystallized more and more. His compositions testify to an epic, electrified soul garment made of a dark, somewhat abysmal energy. Thus the Dane has found his musical identity.
On his debut album "Cohere" from March 2017 Vargas unleashed all his concentrated influences and powers and delivered a 19 song work. One that encompasses soft, cuddly tones full of vulnerability, only to break out rhythmically in the next moment into pieces like "Inclosure" or the thrilling "Shackled Up" and fall into ecstasy. Alex Vargas's compositions are an extreme field of tension when big gestures alternate with very quiet, reserved moments. This is also true live at his concerts, such as the one on 28 January 2019 in the Papiersaal Zurich.
