Wonderland Magazine Premieres Music Video for Salt Ashes ‘Raided’
Wonderland Magazine has just premiered the music video for Salt Ashes’ new single, ‘Raided.’ You can pre-order ‘Raided’ on iTunes now, with the track being released worldwide tomorrow, March 10th, 2015 on Radikal Records.
Salt Ashes’ strain of pop music explores the darkness in disco, with its deep, cold electronics matched with the light, almost shimmering tones of Sanchez’s voice. With her debut single, ‘Somebody’, Sanchez was eager to convey a break-up with industrial synths, arpeggiators, yearning vocal and a rather erotic video.
Building on that ‘Raided’ has more complexity in its materials. The sparse, house-y verses take tips from minimal R&B, while the vocal sits firmly in the ethereal. Meanwhile, driving percussion is matched with pumps of electronics, wooshing pads and a chorus that catches you with first listen. With the video, Sanchez is exploring her dark side again. “I wanted to create something with a dark B-movie, late-night kind of vibe,” she says, “probably because I’d been watching a lot of Neo-noir, thriller movies at the time.” – Alim Kheraj (Wonderland Magazine)
