Today, Sandro Cavazza releases his captivating, ludicrously catchy third single, “So Much Better”. The new single comes alongside Cavazza’s self-titled debut EP, also released today. Listen to the single and EP everywhere now here.
The Sandro Cavazza EP represents a body of work that delves deep into personal experiences portrayed through a universal lens while compromising no authenticity. As he puts it, “I really look up to artists who do what they want to do, who have a lot of integrity. Where you feel the decisions are made not around the dollar signs but by what they actually want to do.”
Premiering today with EARMILK, his new single “So Much Better” once again showcases Cavazza’s raw, undeniably powerful voice; this time, Cavazza’s roaring vocal is seamlessly fused with a minimal tropical house beat.
“So Much Better” follows his last single release, “Don’t Hold Me,” a track that marches forward with brooding elegance finding solace in its deeply personal confessional. Cavazza regards “Don’t Hold Me” as a track about “a relationship that’s not great for you and you need to let go,” which lent itself naturally to last month’s release of the emotive live session and acoustic version of the track. “Don’t Hold Me” followed debut track, “What It Feels Like,” a striking song mixing subtle electronics with lush string flourishes and cradled by Cavazza’s gorgeous longing vocal. The self-titled EP is rounded out by track “What Kind Of Man,” a gospel-inspired, soaring ode exploring Cavazza’s take on what it means to be a man in today’s world.
Sandro is no newcomer to songwriting and has been honing his chops since childhood. He has written alongside notable artists such as Avicii as a co-writer and lead vocalist on “Sunset Jesus” and “Gonna Love Ya” from the Stories album, as well as Lost Frequencies‘ “Beautiful Life.” He’s since found his stride in honest, straightforward pop music anchored by a voice that is emotive in its most undeniable form. “The songs are all connected by honesty,” he proclaims.
That said, the road to his debut EP certainly hasn’t been without its forks. He spent a short-lived stint at Stockholm music academy Rytmus (boasting alumni such as Icona Pop and Tove Lo), took an extended charity trip to Brazil, and traversed the U.S. on a writing tour setting up pop-up recording studios at National Parks throughout the country with Avicii. It was these experiences, however fragmented, that solidified his belief that music was his only path.
Sandro made his live debut this year at ‘Where’s The Music’ in Norrköping, Sweden and will continue to add dates as the year progresses.
