Well-produced, doom-groovy, stoner/sludge Swedish metal band VAK were highly praised for their previous album “Loud Wind”. And now, a new album is on the horizon. But while we wait for the new full length, VAK has teamed up with the Swedish singer Anja Bigrell for a brilliant cover of José Gonzálezʼ acoustic indie-pop track “How Low”. VAK’s version is delightfully heavy, atmospheric, and hypnotic. It was released earlier this October, and now the Lyric Video is up on YouTube!

“We all really love José Gonzálezʼ music and thought that especially ʼHow Lowʼ has a rock vibe which we wanted to explore. We also like the political aspects of the lyrics. This was the last recording with our former guitarist Ivan Rey. Meanwhile, we are making progress in the recording of our new upcoming album, which is composed around a lyrical theme: the city of Stockholm.” - VAK
