As far as local artists go, SAÍGO may be one of the most thoughtful. Each message he conveys means something personally and is capable of fostering a dialogue across a myriad subjects. His newest single is called “Thieves,” but the only thing it means to steal is your heart. Listen to it exclusively below.
“Each of us knows a thousand faces, but we’re lucky to truly trust a few souls. As we unravel the threads of each others’ personalities, we learn how to love and protect each other. Life may steal all you own, but a good relationship is like a backup drive for the inner self. As long as you have someone who understands you, you can always start over from scratch.”
To feel alone in a crowd is to feel human. SAÍGO has been through it, hence the verses on the new track, and he is here to remind us that a support system will make all the difference. The brass that lifts the chorus shimmers through the song like light into a mirror; “Thieves” dances with drum machines and the Vietnamese-American artist’s own falsetto. When he cries for help, he acknowledges that he is not alone. In a way he becomes our support, there to keep our secrets when we feel taken advantage of in our own lives.
