The Sizzos Share New Musical Journey with Vol.1 of the Singles Series Featuring ‘Wooden Bridge’ and ‘Lizard Skin’

The Sizzos returned on the 12th of April 2024 with an electrifying release that promises to captivate audiences once again. Introducing ‘Vol. 1 of the Singles Series’, featuring the mesmerizing A-side track ‘Wooden Bridge’ and the evocative B-side ‘Lizard Skin’. The Sizzos is a collaborative musical project, formed and fronted by singer, songwriter George Zaninovich. Based in Eugene, OR, the project features a host of talented guests whose individual styles offer a distinctive sound that placed the debut album, She’s Driving Down, on a Top 10 of 2021 and Album Not to Miss alongside War on Drugs and Lord Huron. With 20 years of experience as a singer-songwriter under his belt, the indie artist sure knows how to create compelling tracks and his new release is no exception.

‘Wooden Bridge’ is a hauntingly beautiful collaboration with This Side of Wednesday delving deep into themes of intention and loss. The Sizzos’ poignant lyrics weave a tale of feeling trapped, seeking liberation by any means necessary. With This Side of Wednesday’s ethereal vocals and Kabir Green’s driving bass, the song builds an urgent, emotive narrative that is sure to resonate with every listener. At its core, the track stands as a reminder to nurture relationships.

On the flip side, Lizard Skin takes audiences on a nostalgic journey, reminiscent of iconic bands like Tears for Fears and The Cure. Featuring the guitar and string arrangements skills of Dylan Lounsberry, the instrumental track exudes an exploratory spirit, mirroring the shedding of expectations in parenthood. Inspired by their shared experiences as fathers to children with reptilian pets, The Sizzos and Dylan Lounsberry share a musical landscape that is both introspective and profound.

But what sets Zaninovich apart is his intentional far away approach to soundstage and mixing. Often overlooked, his deliberate use of distant sounds, slightly tucked vocals, and atmospheric elements add nuance to his compositions.

He shared: “I like the cinematic, stretched-out nature of Michael Kiwanuka, and I draw inspiration from bands like War on Drugs, The Cure and The National. I hope listeners find solace and connection in my music, diving deep into the emotions it evokes.”
