While I'm Carrying Your Skin is the first track from Varg's full length musical tour-de-force, Embroidery. With Embroidery, Varg have have taken their pop hymns to a new level. Finding inspiration in the music of Chelsea Wolfe, Efterklang and Stina Nordenstam, they have written their finest melodies yet and augmented them with horns, strings, orchestral percussion and vocal harmonies. Embroidery was recorded and refined together with producer György Barocsai, from Gothenburg’s legendary Svenska Grammofonstudion.
Embroidery is a suite of emotions and a compression of our hearts. It is a collection of songs where we have embroidered our skin, our veins and our blood. Embroidery is a matter of the heart.
