about

"To Stockholm from L.A." is a duet ballad , the characters in the song are two longing lovers divided by the pond.
- It's like a love story between the mythic North and the City of Angels, says Vargen. Given the pandemic situation, it's brought a poignant dimension to the lyrics, which we didn't intended at first.


Released exclusively on Bandcamp November 1, 2020 (other streaming services on Nov 13).

Anna Vild and Vargen (Vild translates as "Wild" and Vargen as "The Wolf") has been performing together since 2017. "To Stockholm from L.A." is their first collaboratation as songwriting partners.

lyrics

TO STOCKHOLM FROM L.A.

Glistening snow
Candle lights, children chatter
Sky crisp and cold
Every year, same old pattern

Sunset’s dressed in fire glow
Busy n’ bright as I’m walkin' through
But it doesn’t matter
‘cause all I think about is you

The night is silent and frozen
Heart cries out as Yuletide blows in

To Stockholm from L.A.
I call out to the wild skies
If there’s a will there’s a way
Just as love flies

The night is silent and frozen
Heart cries out as Yuletide flows in

To Stockholm from L.A.
I call out to the wild skies
If there’s a will there’s a way
Just as love flies

To Stockholm from L.A.
If there’s a will now there is a way
To Stockholm from L.A.

Glistening snow
Candle lights, children chatter
Sky crisp and cold
Every year, same old pattern
