Following the release of her debut self-titled album (for fans of Kylie Minogue, Tove Lo, Grimes) in July 2016 via Radikal Records, electronic singer-songwriter Salt Ashes announces her latest single, ‘Girls’, which was released on Friday 4th May.
‘Girls’ is about a situation that I’m sure many can relate to; when someone makes an assumption that you want more than just friendship based on their interpretation of how you act or dress. The track is about breaking the stereotypes of people who want to express themselves and their sexuality freely without the “slut shaming” or being told that they’re “asking for it”. I’d hope for the song to inspire confidence within people to stick to their decisions with who they want to be… I wanted the photo shoot to build on that with a strong message by trying to mess with stereotypes and ‘seeing with the eyes of the other person’ before making assumptions or judgements. The track was produced by Tom Fuller, and I co-wrote it with Born Stranger who are a band I performed with last year, after having experienced that exact situation for the millionth time.
She has opened for and shared the stage with artists such as Tove Styrke, Little Boots, Say Lou Lou, Bright Light Bright Light, FEMME and NIMMO across various venues in the UK as well as lending her vocal talents to label mate Kristian Nairn (famous for his role as Hodor in Game Of Thrones) and his track ‘4Love’. Salt Ashes is currently writing new music with plenty of releases expected this year.
