A Gorgeous Live Set From Lilla Vargen Will Lift Your Spirits

No matter how isolated you might feel right now, you are not alone. That’s why Mahogany Sessions has been delivering the Isolation Sessions — with musicians putting on live performances from their homes. This full set from Lilla Vargen, while isolated in Newcastle, is a totally enchanting showcase of a rising talent.

Performing Hold On, Why Wait, Solitary, Yellow (Coldplay), Blueprints, Bad Weather, and Love You Twice, you get a great sense of Vargen’s repertoire — not to mention a nearly-40 minute live performance.

One of the most refreshing things about Lilla Vargen is that, despite her success, she’s not rushing herself. She’s been touring with Dermot Kennedy, received huge praise and new fans, but she’s not in a rush to release a full album until the time is right.

“To have done an album now would’ve been wrong,” she explained. “I’m still working towards that. I need to do myself justice and make sure it’s the best it can be. The best way to do that is give yourself time to make the best music and show progression through that. From my very first EP, to this one, to the next, there’s a definite progression. I need that to happen before I can say, ‘This is my album and it is me.’”

It’s an impressive show of self-awareness and integrity from such a young performer — and surely a sign of good things to come.
