Salt Ashes – Raided

We’ve been pretty quiet over the last few months, but by no means have we been idle. Not to mention celebrating our 1st birthday, and what a year it’s been (more about that here). We’ve seen some great artists, and many of our regular readers will know she’s a firm favourite here at The Undscvrd, and yes, we’re talking about Salt Ashes.

Salt Ashes immersed the reigns of her tenebrific, yet captivating lyrical melodies and sleek productions into our lives with her debut ‘Somebody‘ and a mesmerizing live show early last year, and we’ve been proud superfans supporters ever since. Last month, following the success of her second single ‘If You Let Me Go‘ (which currently sits at #11 on the Billboard Dance charts), she released ‘Raided‘ – a darker offering with some heavy underground club tones. Of the track, she adds

“A friend took me to an underground club in Berlin that reminded me of Warhol’s ‘Factory’. Everyone seemed to be escaping the outside world, hiding whatever secret or story they had. I became fascinated by them and tried to imagine what their real stories were which lead me to write ‘Raided’.”

Salt Ashes’ first gig of the year was on March 23rd at the Sebright Arms supporting Croox at their sold-out show, and although the stage was a little small for her and the band (producer Cruelty and the long awaited return of drummer Jason), that didn’t stop them putting on a must-see show, with some soul piercing high vocals from the dark disco queen herself, and what a perfect warm-up to their forthcoming days on the big stage. Speaking of which, Salt Ashes will be supporting French duo Say Lou Lou (say whaaat) at Heaven, London on April 8th! We’ve watched her grow over the last year, and it’s safe to say it won’t take long before Salt Ashes becomes a household name.
