Salt Ashes Releases Stripped Back Live Session Video for New Single “Don’t”
Electronic pop artist, Salt Ashes has released a special live session for her new single, “Don’t”. Filmed in Salt Ashes’ dining room during rehearsals, the intimate performance features only an electric guitar, allowing the singer-songwriter’s luscious vocals to shine.
Written with acclaimed UK singer-songwriter, Jon Allen during a studio session where they both ended up counselling each other about past relationships, “Don’t” is the emotionally charged anti-love song outcome of their time writing together. Co-produced by Salt Ashes herself and Jonny Coote the single presents a lighter feel than her previous releases, with Salt Ashes’ luscious vocals taking center stage amidst a sparse and down-tempo production interspersed with warm synth melodies.
“I wrote the song with Jon Allen in one of those studio sessions where you spend the day counselling each other and then end up writing a song about it in the final hour. It’s my anti-love song and confession to a guy that I was seeing. I told him from the start that I didn’t want anything serious but he ended up wanting more and not believing that I didn’t too. I’m not looking for love right now. I had a big love and that fucked up so I’m not ready to go through another for that one to fuck up too.” – Salt Ashes
