New York City-based singer/songwriter Liz Asaro has a sound that features rugged guitars that complement the urgency of her vocals. This is delicate balance is on full display on her latest single, "1000 Years." The driving bass line helps emphasize her blend of pop and rock, and if this is any indicator of what's to come from Asaro's debut album, the sound is promising.
"'1000 Years' is about what we've learned from those who have come before us in life, and what we have not learned," she explains. "Or what we have chosen to ignore maybe. We have made so much progress as humans, yet in some ways, we have made little to none. Today's social and political climate speak to this. The song asks you to think about what happened in the past right where you are standing, or maybe in past lives of your own if they exist, and take the things you have learned and put them in place. Are you going to remain helpless? Will you try to keep others standing still with you? Or will you take what you innately know and apply it in productive ways?
Liz Asaro's "1000 Years" is out on June 21.
