Pretty Saro

Pretty Saro celebrates latest record with show at Club Passim 07.23

The music of Boston’s Pretty Saro has a shimmer to it, a softness that soothes the listener while eliciting from the same a smile or two. It is the storytelling in each song that makes this folk group so intriguing: stories of love found and lost out west and of towns long disremembered all come to life among the myriad of string instrument harmonies and fine vocal melodies. Racing Back to You is the band’s latest record, perfectly encapsulating the spirit of New England folk music. Each track offers a story seemingly unconnected that finds a way to weave itself into a larger tale throughout the record. The themes of friendship, love, and home longing all help to make Racing Back to You a relatable album that deserves a good listen. Pretty Saro is celebrating the release of the record with a performance at Club Passim in Cambridge on July 23rd. We are streaming “Hindsight” for you below. - Rene Cobar
