Today, Los Angeles artist Saro has debuted a brand new single and title track from his upcoming sophomore EP. The song is titled “Boy Afraid” and it premiered with FLOOD Magazinehere. The track is available everywhere now here.
Taken from Saro’s forthcomingBoy Afraid EP, now set for release December 15,“Boy Afraid” is a brooding mid-tempo ballad putting Saro’s lush tenor on full display while taking a figurative dig at societal constructs and media-driven expectations. Saro describes the song’s purpose in providing a creative platform to “shed these force-fed inadequacies, the fear and self-doubt… eventually.”
The new single release comes on the heels of Saro’s announcement as one of Rolling Stone‘s ‘New Artists You Need To Know’ column for November 2017 here.
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.
Saro was also a featured vocalist (alongside Broods & Reggie Watts) on the fall 2017 new single “Stranded” by Australian producer duo Flight Facilities. The track premiered with Zane Lowe and can be streamed now here.
