Today, Los Angeles artist Saro has released a brand new single from his forthcoming sophomore EP. The track is titled “Vapor” and it premiered today with EARMILKhere.
The 3rd single to see a release from Saro’s forthcomingBoy Afraid EP, now set for release December 15, “Vapor” pulls Saro’s sonic dexterity into the spotlight straddling a line of neo-R&B and intricate electronic elements. The song explores a relationship’s fallout and ultimately becoming “intangible to someone…you have changed state. And through their grasp slips the fog of you, leaving only traces of your memory.”
“Vapor” follows the first two singles from Saro’s sophomore EP, “Eyelids” and “Sky Doesn’t Blue.” “Eyelids” focuses Saro’s unique sound through a fresh new lens of noir disco. Down-tempo, pulsing track “Sky Doesn’t Blue” kicked off the new EP alongside a gorgeous concept performancevisual, showcasing Saro’s portrayal of the song through emotive lyrical dance.
Saro’s forthcoming new EP titled Boy Afraiddelves into themes of personal introspection, love (and the lack thereof), as well as the deep disillusionment ailing society today. His sophomore body of work, the Boy Afraid EP mirrors Saro’s development as a matured songwriter and musician, focusing heightened attention on self-realization and the rejection of life’s cruelties.
This week also saw the debut of Saro’s vocal feature (alongside Broods & Reggie Watts) on brand new track “Stranded” by Australian producer duo Flight Facilities. The track premiered with Zane Lowe and can be streamed now here.
In Loving Memory, Saro’s debut EP released in December of last year, set the stage for his steady rise this spring, firmly establishing him as a force to be reckoned with. Featuring his first two hit singles “Test” and “Looking,” the Robin Hannibal executive-produced EP explores the various stages of mourning. 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.
