Salt Ashes Unveils Music Video for “Save It”

When speaking to Billboard about “Save It” and the inspiration for the video, Salt Ashes stated..
“I wanted to create an abstract and artistic piece of work that mixed darkness with beauty and sexuality with rebellion. The song is about fighting for a love that others don’t approve of, so aside from wanting to portray the obvious intense passion there’s a lot of tension and defiance within the song that I wanted to come across.”
The music video was filmed at three separate locations in two cities. The “darkness” is portrayed visually within the video’s séance sequence — as well as lyrically as Sanchez laments, “They said your kiss would poison mine/ And it’s nothing I can trust/ But my veins won’t ease the flood/ ’Cause I still can’t get enough.”
“The idea behind the video was to contrast scenes of a ritual and a séance, to symbolize others trying to expel our love for each other, with darker, faster paced, scenes of unbinding passion and rebellion against those people.”
