PRESENTED BY NICK STUBBLEFIELD

Los Angeles native Saro’s music explores life’s darker side while still finding light within that space. It can be said that darkness breeds the best art. On his recently released debut EP In Loving Memory out now on his freshly minted Mateo Sound Label, songs like “Test” accompanied by a jarring visual, reach into themes of emotional convolution and resilience amidst painstaking grief. Other tracks like “Looking” and “Two Suns” showcase Saro’s distinct mastery in exploring the depths of human conscious via lyrically-charged works of forward-thinking noir pop. Stereogum hails Saro’s music calling it “deceptively penetrating pop craft.”

2017 has seen Saro begin to tease a sophomore EP. 1st EP single “Sky Doesn’t Blue” sets Saro's soaring, impassioned vocals to a down-tempo, trance-inducing beat, which Pigeons and Planes called "simultaneously sad and beautiful." 2nd single "Eyelids" focuses Saro's signature dark pop through a fresh new lens of noir disco grandeur, which NYLON found "electrifying." The soon-to-be-named sophomore EP is slated for a fall 2017 release.

Saro’s live show is a powerful experience where he channels his deeply affecting electronic pop in a convergence with unique movement and physicality that touches on performance art. His visuals, which he co-directs, paint a beautiful yet dark picture that is an ethereal, strong, quiet presence on the brink of chaos.

Saro first debuted his live show early 2017 and has since played several LA dates, SXSW, and Brooklyn's Northside Festival (supporting Miguel).

Fall 2017 will see Saro continue to play club dates and festivals, which will fall alongside the rollout of his new EP.
