Sazu is a 17 year-old singer, songwriter and producer from Boston, Massachussets. Despite his young age he has been making music professionally since 2018 when he released his debut single “Memories.” In that time the talented young artist has released nearly two dozen singles and amassed a sizable fanbase with over 300,000 streams on services like Spotify and SoundCloud.
“Tired Eyes” is a recent single from Sazu, and a bit of a departure for him, stylistically speaking. Whereas most of his music to date has fallen into either the EDM or Ambient Electronic genres, “Tired Eyes” is an emotional Pop ballad. Opening with the singer alone with his piano, he tells a melancholy tale of a relationship on the rocks.
As the track progresses, expansive ambient synths, strings, woodwinds and a hint of guitar broaden the horizon. In the second verse Sazu is joined by vocalist Jane Xie. She provides a beautifully soulful take, playing her role as the other half of the troubled relationship. “Tired Eyes” is not a breakup song so much as a shared sadness. Sometimes relationships are hard. This is the sound of two people dealing with that reality. Both musically and vocally the duo delivers an excellent performance.
