You want that lover back but the door has closed and the lock is bolted closed now.

Signed by the legendary indie Uprise Records UK, this is an artist on the rise as his team are beyond excited with his growth and the excellent results so far, shows their belief in him is on point.

The crashing waves flow through and make a soothing sound over the ocean as you wonder down the beach, lost in your own thoughts as you go through everything that just happened. This is the start of a music video that touches on a relevant topic that so many of us have faced. That pain after feeling love; that empty feeling that has you questioning your every move. Instead, this should be when you take it on the chin, get up, heal and move on. This is easier said than done however and will take that extra strength and discipline to be your life jacket and keep you afloat.

This is the story of a mind that is ticking way too fast and tormenting itself about a love that was going so well and then ended too fast. This is a harsh feeling that you probably shouldn’t feel but do anyway. You cared more about her than she did for you so swimming again to new seas is perfectly right in this moment.

A heartfelt song to get that true love back: Averto shows regret for past mistakes on ‘Cry’

A sensually pleasing voice that meshes with a beat that is quite sumptuously classy, we are let in the door by a duo that tell the true story of a love that is so strong but needs to heal in order to truly blossom. Averto bring us a song to listen deeply to on the Indie-Pop single ‘Cry‘.

Taken off the brand new 4-track EP called ‘1304‘, this is a sexy-sad song that is loaded with regret and also an honest take on how they are deep inside.

Featuring a sax-filled chorus that makes you take notice, you can’t help but enjoy this new single that is hugely relevant in modern day society. With Social Media clouding our morals and values, some elements of short bursts of silly selfishness seeps through into us all sometimes, even if we don’t want it to be this way.

Jahlisa Jade and Zack form together tightly as Averto and this team are rather tremendous here on ‘Cry‘. This is a relevant story for all of us that have been with such a beautiful soul, that somehow seems to hurt us again and again, even if they don’t mean to. Its a lesson into how strong the love really is, if it can be rebuilt with true communication then the chances of survival are greater but this needs lots of compassion and honesty. Only then, can our souls be reconnected into that meaningful love, without constant and traumatic tears.
