Sometimes the most intimate, pained songwriting can only be expressed in something vast.
It's almost as if by moving inwards, the music must push outwards, in the opposite direction. Vita Bergen - a duo, real names William Hellström and Robert Jallinder - seem to exemplify this.
With a handful of demos leaking online and a few gigs played, Vita Bergen are already causing a stir. Their sound - epic, rooted in electronics with a powerful sense of instrumentation - is matched against lyrics that speak frankly about the inner workings of the heart.
Debut EP 'Vita Bergen' drops on October 22nd via Kning Disk/Telegram Studios and there's a sense of Arcade Fire in their vast, propulsive approach.
Clash is able to premiere new track 'Disconnection'. An intense piece of songwriting, it opens in brooding fashion before suddenly flinging itself open to the world, secrets showering down from the heavens.
