Behind The Scene Press: For people like myself who don’t normally listen to electronic music but do listen to pop music, what song of your’s would you recommend to convert us from your album coming out this summer?
Salt Ashes: The album is an electronic/pop album, I would say, with an electronic production but a lot of ‘pop’ hooks… But then what each person considers pop is different these days. I’d start you off on the lead single ‘Save It’ and let you explore from there.
BtS: Your self-titled album has a nostalgia for 70s disco with your fantastic airy vocals and strings. It’s always a beautiful to hear something that brings up memories of songs we weren’t alive for. Would you say you’re a big fan of disco? Do you have any favorite disco songs?
SA: Definitely a fan of disco. I love the whole Studio 54 era and not for just the music but for the clothes and the mentality too. The first song that really got me into disco was ‘Hold Tight’ by Change which is really post-disco but this lead me to discover ‘I Feel Love’ by Donna Summer.
BtS: What advice would you give to a DJ, vocalist, or musician who wants to get into writing the type of music that you do?
SA: Throw all of yourself into it… don’t be afraid.. and always make the music you want to make and not what you think people want to hear.
