In The Spotlight

Kate Vargas – “This Affliction”

Raised in New Mexico and now based in New York, this powerhouse performer grew up in a folklore-rich community. Her inherent creativity led to an interest in music, particularly jazz. She attended Berklee College Of Music, which rekindled a love for songwriting. She played copious live shows all over the world, showcasing her melodious blend of dreampop, folk and junkyard blues.

Taken from her latest album “For The Wolfish And Wandering”, this single is a spellbinding jam filled to the brim with dark blues-pop grit. Merging a prowling rhythm and anguished guitar into a vintage-dipped, heart-wrenching blues, it’s the smoky roughness of her hard-hitting, charismatic vocals, which have an unexplainable bewitching quality, that give it an otherworldly attraction.
