Saro – “Test”

Saro – “Test”

LA singer-songwriter Saro makes a bouncy, highly melodic brand of indie pop interjected with intricate synth flourishes reminiscent of Télépopmusik with less of a jazz influence. His debut EP is set to drop later this fall, and an early foray into it is “Test.” He employs a smooth falsetto as he sings piercingly about finally seeing a lover for who they really are. He realizes, “Well now I can see underneath that you’re hollow/ When you leap from the edge oh I know not to follow.” A bed of synth layers lay the foundation as subtle percussion bubbles on top, lifting his melodies and enhancing their earworm quality. If “Test” is any indication, Saro’s debut will be a solid collection of deceptively penetrating pop craft. Listen.

Saro’s debut is out later this fall on his own Mateo Sound imprint.
