Prolific Award-Winning Artist Sarantos Releases Emotional EDM Single

Innovative singer-songwriter Sarantos has released his latest single called ‘I Wish’ to benefit Make A
Wish Foundation.

Released on August 2nd, 2022, the new EDM/Pop single by Sarantos combines genres to offer a unique musical experience. Titled ‘I Wish’, the song explores the human need to have more things in life, as the artist also shares his personal struggle with the obsession of always wanting more. Always writing his own lyrics, Sarantos aims to humanize all the emotions and feelings that society thinks are bad, due to which people keep those feelings hidden deep inside. By using his music as a conduit for this emotional discourse, Sarantos sets himself apart in the EDM and Pop music scene.

The Official music video for ‘I Wish’ will be released on August 9th, 2022. The music video features stunning visuals of vast landscapes where a lost man can be seen walking in search of something. According to Sarantos, “This visual signifies the meaning of the song. The man walking symbolizes myself and all the other people, who are always in search of more happiness in a world that seems to be riddled with neverending problems. The man travels to every corner of the globe; from Chicago to Alcatraz, Normandy, Iceland, Switzerland, and India to Australia looking for answers. The dreaminess of the footage mirrors the fluctuation between hope and despair as the suspenseful story plays out. The man’s life is far from perfect, but he isn’t ready for it to end…”

The single continues a string of releases by Sarantos that benefit charity. ‘I Wish’ will benefit Make A Wish Foundation. Sarantos says, “A wish experience can be a game-changer for a child with a critical illness. I think this belief guides that organization in everything they do. It inspires them to grant life-changing wishes for children going through so much and compels them to be creative in exceeding the kid’s expectations.”

She manages to make this rather captivating world one that feels doubly refreshing. Everything about her delivery adds to the inherent beauty of the piece. Rhythms go for a looseness ensuring that every single detail gets accentuated with percussion that works on an emotional level. Best of all the riffs have a dreamy disposition for there is this sense of pure longing that defines the work.

She holds nothing back and right from the beginning it has its own sense of purpose. A groove has an unsteadiness to it, perfectly embodying what a lot of tequila might do to a person. This, on top of the lustful glances that she brings into the fray, further adds to the romantic quality of the work. Volume adds to this for the piece virtually works itself into an outright crescendo. Many different parts of the group makes sure to intermingle creating this vast expanse of territory, the kind of thing that feels quite potent. For the final stretch of the mix the song seemingly tapers off, allowing for a gradual letdown of that kinetic energy, with her voice continuing to lead the way all until the very final moments.

“Tequila” has a tenderness to it, for Ashley Puckett makes sure to touch upon the very essence of what it means to truly want.
