Having already spellbound audiences across Europe, sold out several headline tours, filled some of the biggest venues in his home country and sold in excess of 50,000 copies of his album Cohere, Alex Vargas is gearing up for his highly anticipated follow-up EP by announcing his first European run of shows of 2019 with a stop in Prague.
Initially, Vargas was paired with Girls Aloud hitmaker Brian Higgins, at the pop production house Xenomania, to write his debut album. Finding four musicians to complete the lineup, the project became a band called Vagabond, who toured as support for both James Morrison and The Script, and played Glastonbury twice. Vagabond’s songs were quirky, guitar and synth-inflected pop songs, but looking back, Vargas knows his heart wasn’t in it. He dissolved the band before recording a second album, choosing instead to go solo.
2018 year has already seen Vargas headline his first ever arena show in Copenhagen selling out 6,500 tickets while he was also back at Roskilde Festival this summer. In front of 19,000 spectators he closed a chapter and is now ready to turn the page. The brand new single and first new release in almost 1,5 years from Alex Vargas is Silent Treatment – a song on which he has turned down the noise for a minute and upped the dreamy, atmospheric soul with his sensual deep voice and crisp falsetto as the messenger.
