Between silence and noise-soul

Before you get ghosted into the abyss of your ex’s ‘block list,’ there is that awkward silence that you go through, which can be even more painful than words. Danish artist Alex Vargas taps into that surreal-like phase in his new soulful single “Silent Treatment.” Using minimalistic texture and emotive flair, Alex crafts a slow-burning soundscape where he exercises his vocal versatility, which looms between poetic reflection and hooky chanting. “Like it’s, like it’s on silence” sings Alex. The choruses capture the knee-jerk reaction to silent treatments that we’re all too familiar with, but never feel prepared for – stream below:
