One of the future musical world leaders has released a new single. Danish-bred, London-based Alex Vargas has released his newest single ‘Shackled Up’ as the next taste of his forthcoming EP. If you attended one of his concerts last year, then you have for sure already heard him play it live with his bandmate, Tommy Sheen.
The new single ‘Shackled Up’ is a simple and minimalistic show of force. It is a tasty dessert with a gorgeous and sublime vocal and rhythmic sensationalism as the main ingredients. Alex is indeed in a league of himself. In addition to his just released official audio, Distiller Music has invited him to perform an acoustic version of it, which they as well released yesterday. You can see it below, and also hear the official recording. The most impressive thing is that there are no significant differences between the acoustic- and the official versions. Pure talent is all these two musicians are about.
Alex Vargas and Tommy Sheen once again prove that Danish music has a promising future, both domestic and international – as I also stated in my review of their concert at Train in October last year.
Check out their studio version and an acoustic version of ‘Shackled Up’ below.
