No one knows more than Lilla Vargen that it can be hard to show vulnerability, and the latest song from the Northern Irish singer-songwriter sees her lay her heart out on the line.
A tender, trickling track, “Why Wait” sees Vargen show off her soaring vocals, while singing earnestly about her own experience of leaving behind a toxic relationship.
And accompanying the song, the sweeping emotional visuals delve deep into the ongoing housing crisis in Ireland – a subject very close to the singer’s own heart and family.
“I put up with a lot because when you care about somebody you can become completely oblivious,” she says. “I think that’s one of my biggest flaws but it’s also a strength, because I care so deeply for my friends and for my family. That’s why the EP is called ‘We Were Thunder’… you can get completely lost in it and it feels magic, but that can go away very quickly”.
