Alex Vargas battles Mental Health on ‘What You Wish For’
FFO: SAVEUS, Soleima
Label: Copenhagen Records
Danish singer-songwriter Alex Vargas turns his personal struggle into a powerful message of positivity in his latest single ‘What You Wish For.’
Channeling his own realisations – that it was time he confronted and battled his own mental health – Vargas puts this fight right into the music, crafting a musical journey that shifts and swirls between emotional singer-songwriter and airy electro-pop in the blink of an eye. Soft guitar chords meander and whirl behind his honeyed vocal deliveries, as the track builds to an emotional crescendo around the two-and-a-half minute mark, bringing in driving electro beats and synth.
“It’s a warning to anyone suffering with mental health issues,” explains Alex. “A reminder to talk to someone, be it a friend or a professional. A week after writing ‘What You Wish For’ I had my first ever therapy session.”
