Substream Magazine Premieres Salt Ashes “counting crosses” Music Video
Salt Ashes debuts self-directed video for “counting crosses,” shot on iPhone while in self-quarantine.
In the age of quarantine the UK-based singer had to get creative with filming her latest music video. The result is a stunning, crimson-drenched visual for the single, shot and edited entirely in Salt Ashes’ bedroom on an iPhone, with additional color grading done by Simon J Davy.
I filmed and edited this music video by myself in my bedroom whilst in lockdown. It’s amazing what you can create when you put your mind to it. I used a white sheet, red lights, a tripod, my iPhone and my housemates hands for the shots towards the end. I wanted to create some visually interesting and artistic shots by moving and positioning my body in different angles,playing with the contrast of skin on skin and editing the video to make it very dynamic and disjointed.
Produced entirely by Louis Souyave, the counting crosses EP sees the Salt Ashes taking her unique synth-pop to the next level. “I’ve never had someone so in my head and understanding exactly what I want more than [Louis]” states Salt Ashes. “It was very collaborative too which makes me even more in love with the record as a whole.”
Delivering some of her strongest vocal performances to date and blending her dance/electronic influences with dark atmospheres and introspective lyrics, counting crosses solidifies her as an ‘Artist to Watch’ for both the genre and in the UK music scene.
