Today, Los Angeles artist Saro has debuted a brand new song, “Sky Doesn’t Blue,” the first single to see a release from his forthcoming sophomore EP. The track is released alongside a gorgeous concept performance visual, showcasing Saro’s portrayal of the song through emotive lyrical dance. See Pigeons and Planes‘ premiere of the new track HERE.
The track marks the start of a new chapter for Saro as he begins to roll out his first new material since his 2016 introduction. Pigeons and Planes calls the track, “A brooding work in noir-pop laced with sparse electronics and Saro’s sleek yearning vocal…marches along a down-tempo, trance-inducing beat creating something simultaneously sad and beautiful.”
Released December of last year, Saro’s debut EP, In Loving Memory, set the stage for his steady rise this spring, firmly establishing him as a force to be reckoned with. Driven by hit singles “Test” and “Looking,” the Robin Hannibal executive-produced EP is a deeply cathartic work exploring various stages of mourning. It saw widespread critical acclaim including Pigeons and Planes, who lauded its, “polished production, sweet melodies, and hooks fit for anthems.” In Loving Memory was released alongside a full visual EP experience of original videos for each of the EP’s 7 tracks. See the Full EP visual HERE.
Saro first debuted his live show early 2017 with a run of LA support shows and stunned further audiences with his debut LA headline show at KCRW’s ‘School Night.’ He also performed at SXSW 2017, which saw buzz from outlets such as Buzzbands LA, DoLA and Billboard, who declared, “At every SXSW there’s the show that could be the ‘I saw them play for 30 people at South-By in [insert year] before anyone knew who they were,’ and this year’s just might be Saro.”
