Saro, Nothing Remains

Alex Cook


An exploration of the words and feelings that go unspoken, “Nothing Remains” speaks to the ability of music and art to express the things so often left buried in our own inner worlds. As Saro explains: “I wrote ‘Nothing Remains’ about the anger stage of mourning a loss. When I lost something so close to me with no explanation, it felt like all I could do was attempt to scream away the pain. I wanted the music video to embody the healing properties of music and how I use it as an escape from reality. Music can truly make it feel like the whole world freezes for a moment.”
