Salt Ashes – Stains
Singer-Songwriter Salt Ashes Delivers the Introspective New Single “Stains”
London-based singer-songwriter, Salt Ashes pushes her dark alt-pop sounds to new heights with the introspective new single, “Stains” available everywhere on Friday, July 14th via Radikal Records.
The track was produced and mixed by Louis Souyave, who collaborated with Salt Ashes on her 2021 sophomore album Killing My Mind, along with her most recent single, “Heart Attack”. The two artists’ chemistry in the studio is on full display, as Souyave weaves Salt Ashes vocals through swells of strings, synths and electronic percussion to an emotional and soulful peak over a wall of hard-hitting guitars.
A slight change of pace from her recent dance and electro pop tracks, “Stains” sees Salt Ashes expertly balancing pop sensibility with an alternative edge, as she powerfully delivers the lyrics message of self-reflection and the need to push yourself forward from the pains of the past.
“Stains is a very personal song that I wrote to myself. It’s a song about helping yourself overcome previous pain or trauma and actually asking and allowing yourself to heal, because only you can do that.” – Salt Ashes
The Brighton-born singer Salt Ashes (aka Veiga Sanchez), burst onto the dance music scene with her first full self-titled debut album back in 2016, produced by the late Daniel Fridholm (aka Cruelty), which quickly gained popularity amongst music fans worldwide. She has toured with artists such as Tove Styrke, Say Lou Lou, Nimmo, Bright Light Bright Light, 80s pop sensation Tiffany and most recently with Goldfrapp on their UK tour.
Fusing together an array of influences like Bjork, Depeche Mode and Change, has seen Salt Ashes perfect her craft, creating introspective electronic/dance music with a dark, disco-esque flair. Praise has come from far and wide for the artist since her first release back in 2014, most notably by the likes of The Guardian, DIY, Wonderland, Billboard, MTV, Clash, Line of Best Fit and NOISEY.
