Vargas & Lagola - 'Selfish'
Released on September 28th is 'Selfish,' an instant classic from Vargas & Lagola. The duo, also known as Vincent Pontare and Salem Al Fakir, has been a solid partnership for the past couple of years – previously showcasing their charismatic song writing for artists including: Axwell /\ Ingrosso, Avicii, Katy Perry and Madonna. With a feature on the late Avicii's 'Friend Of Mine' and notable appearances at festivals like Coachella and Summerburst, they are highly revered within the musical community.
Having won 'Composer Of The Year' at the 2014 Swedish Grammy Awards, Vargas & Lagola continue to work from their Stockholm studio; bringing out 'Roads' earlier in 2018 that held a position in the Swedish Spotify Top 50 for four months straight and rose to the number two spot on the Swedish airplay charts. Now at over 21 million streams for their sounds and counting, they make a fresh change of direction with 'Selfish.'
Its guitar-led melody is given a hint of retro appeal with soaring, singalong vocals and neat synth touches. With a powerful breakdown building the energy levels, 'Selfish' will take you on a journey and leave you wanting to hear more.
The pair says of this single: "You can’t change what’s going on around you until you start charging what’s going on within you. Self-love can be a revolution."
