Having mastered the craft of creating music for the masses, Swedish duo Vargas & Lagola took these abilities and channeled them into their personalized alternative pop. And the result is, as expected, potently vibrant. Pop, americana, folk and psychedelic aesthetics blend together in an irresistible mix that is as accessible as it is complex. Vargas & Lagola, comprised of ridiculously acclaimed songwriters Vincent Pontare and Salem Al Fakir, covered their faces with make-up and draped themselves in extravagant clothes in an attempt let go of all the prestige. Not to hide, but to be free.

 

The Grammy Award-winning duo Vargas & Lagola released their celebrated sophomore album ‘Mount Alda’ in 2021. By only using the instruments available in the studio, they managed to maintain the raw and organic nakedness of an original idea. Not only have they returned with singles ‘Ain’t Leaving Now’ and ‘A Power In Letting Go’, Vargas & Lagola will also be giving one of their rare performances at Way Out West this summer. Having played two sold-out Cirkus in Stockholm earlier this year, we can promise you it’ll be an extraordinary experience. Expect everything!

 

Vargas & Lagola will play Way Out West Thursday Aug 11.
