Brighton-based singer Salt Ashes aka Veiga Sanchez, lover of UK electronic music, burst into the dance music scene with her signature dark songs and melodies with a zeitgeist club sound, all of which inspired by Giorgio Moroder’s blend of disco and epic dark atmospheres.
In 2014 she released singles “Somebody” and “If You Let Me Go,” which reached the Top 5 on both Billboard and Music Week Dance Charts. She also won MTVU Freshmen and MTV Iggy’s ‘Artist of the Week’ for “If You Let Me Go.” In 2015, she continued to build her unique blend of dark synth-pop with her single “Raided,” a BBC Introducing and Spotify fan favorite, having been play-listed by 1Xtra. The singer also contributed her writing and vocal talents on label-mate Kristian Nairn’s single entitled “4Love,” and rising producer CRUELS’ single “Give It Up,” both of which received massive support worldwide.
The songstress released her self-titled debut album, produced by Daniel Fridholm (AKA Cruelty) and Rob Irving (House of Emeralds), on Friday, July 15, 2016. The album takes listeners on a journey through love, loss, heartbreak, finding and losing yourself. When asked to describe her debut album, Salt Ashes stated “The songs are like a magnifying glass into the past 5 years of my life, so I’m hoping people will get to know me and my mind a little better.” Drawing influences from Depeche Mode, Giorgio Moroder and AlunaGeorge, the debut album establishes Salt Ashes an exciting artist to watch in the electronic music scene in 2016 and in the future.
