To tide us over in our wait for his much anticipated debut album, Alex Vargas has dropped an all-new single, “Higher Love.” 2016 has been his most successful and busiest year yet for the Danish-English songwriter, with sixty shows and a chart topping EP. His previous singles, such as “Giving Up The Ghost” and “Shackled Up” have also racked up over six million streams collectively on Spotify.
In his latest single, “Higher Love,” he showcases his songwriting and soul prowess. Combining sleek, convictive vocals with an R&B-inspired beat and a simple piano melody, the track has a catchy chorus that stays in your head for hours later. The production on the track is simply enchanting as well, captivating you with its nice balance of guitar-plucking magic and smooth keyboard harmonies. His sleek vocals are also showcased brilliantly, adding a personal touch as he sings through the heart-wrenching lyrics.
“Higher Love” is about those moments where turmoil created by routines and predictability in everyday life. It plants seeds of insecurity in the ground beneath, but that thought of giving up quickly evaporates when you remember how closely you are bound,” said Alex Vargas in a release.
“Higher Love” is the first single off Alex Vargas’ upcoming debut album due to be released early next year. A great first sneak into the album, it gives us much to anticipate.
