Chaz Cardigan Gets Real on “S.O.S.”

Posted by on May 16, 2020

Nashville based singer/songwriter Chaz Cardigan immediately gives nostalgic, anthem-like feelings in his new single “S.O.S.” Resembling The Killers, Walk The Moon, Coin and Bad Suns, he chants his song in a way that sounds so positive and powerful while talking about a pretty deep subject, overcoming what seems like the impossible. “You gotta do better, that’s what you said to me, we just can’t keep on pretending that everythings alright.” We all have a way that we deal with something that we don’t want to deal with, and in “S.O.S” Chaz makes it clear that he wants to try to do better. He wants to prevail over life’s hardships and move on forward. Throughout the whole song, simple but danceable electric guitar power chords are played “over and over again,” further emphasizing what Chaz really wants to convey in the chorus. “I want to get over it, and not pull the same old shit. I’ve got a way of getting in my way, I want to get over it.” With the craziness of COVID-19 and the beginning of summer just around the corner, this is the perfect song for those who want to make a change in this new year, regardless of the challenges yet to come. When Chaz chants “I want to get over it” over and over, he encourages himself and his listeners to power through and conquer their fears, whatever that may be. Addiction, mental health, and everyday struggles can all apply to the feelings conveyed in Chaz’s voice while singing “S.O.S”. There is possibility and positivity in the near future.
