Backed by a full band, Vargen delivers poignant soundscapes with gritty instrumentation, dynamic vocals, and wistful lyricism, exploring themes of characters, dreams, and love. The 40-minute video features original compositions and Swedish translations of classics by Mark Lanegan, Duke Garwood, and Bob Dylan, made possible with support from the Swedish Arts Council, Region Halland, and Varbergs kommun.
