Swedish singer songwriter Lars Bygden isn't trying to cash-in on the dying embers of a current trend; his latest album is his third and, if you've not overdosed on acoustics of late, you'll find that 'The Hole' is a quite moving and well-crafted song. Yes it contains another sadness-tinged animation, but likewise, unless you've seen dozens of these lately (we're blaming REM's 'I'll Take The Rain' for starting this trend) then you'll find that this video may tug on the heartstrings just a little bit too. No matter how much of a certain style is available, there will always be people hearing it for the first time, and it's these people who will find the most rewards in 'The Hole'.
