Sarantos Delivers Heartfelt Intimacy on “Another Surgery”

A symphonic take on the chamber pop ballad, Sarantos brings his heart and soul into it on the touchingly beautiful “Another Surgery.” Going for a much more personal take on his classic sound, the arrangement is fully fleshed out. So many different aspects of various genres show Sarantos’ deep understanding of music. The snippets of classical, symphonic elements, dream pop, ambient, and more filter into a world distinctly his. The highlight is his skillful way of building sonic architecture. He lets those feelings grow from near-hushed reverence until the listener becomes part of him, an audience for his most authentic thoughts.

                Very quiet at first, a sense of intimacy takes hold. This small yet significant gesture sets the tone. The theme feels like a loss, but this is simply the beginning. Losing someone, especially someone as significant as a father, hurts. Yet, along with missing them, there is a spirit of compassion. Celebrating their life and all they did to raise, to be an example is so glorious. Sarantos attests to this strength, the pain that his father went through. Explaining how his father had it much more challenging, Sarantos thanks his father for making his life possible. Cleverly the rhythm grows alongside the sheer volume and scope of the work. For the final stretch, everything soars up towards the sky, giving it this grandeur, one befitting his father’s legacy.

                Done with such confidence and tenderness, Sarantos delivers a genuinely heartfelt message on the intimacy of “Another Surgery.”
