Salt Ashes – Totally Faking
Spotify | Apple Music | Amazon | Google Play | SoundCloud
London based electronic pop artist Salt Ashes has released her new single “Totally Faking” available worldwide on September 6th via Radikal Records.
The emotionally charged new single blends the rising singer-songwriter’s unique dark synth sounds with an infectious dance-pop beat produced by Luke Moseley, who produced Salt Ashes previous single, “Go All Out”.
Speaking of the track, Salt Ashes states:
“Totally Faking is about the moments after losing my dad in an accident where I was made to feel like I had to cut my grieving short and get back to being an artist. I was told to fake it and put on a face and that life is hard but you gotta get on with it. I was too much of a wreck to stand up for myself in that moment and say you know what I can’t do this right now so ended up in a very dark and broken place where I wasn’t sure who I was anymore.”
The track follows up Salt Ashes 2019 single, “Don’t” and her 2018 breakout singles, “Girls” and “Go All Out,” and comes hot on the heels of her recent deconstruction of Madonna’s “Into the Groove”, all of which were extremely well received by tastemakers, including The Line Of Best Fit, Breaking More Waves and PressPlay. The singles were heavily supported by Spotify and appeared on playlists like Spotify’s UK/Italy Viral 50, The Pop List, and New Music Friday playlists? – leading to nearly 500,000 streams.
Most recently Salt Ashes performed to a sold out crowd at Borderline, London, supporting Alphabeat along with headlining at Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen.
She has two upcoming shows in November including a headline show at The Hope and Ruin in Brighton on Nov. 23rd, as well as at the O2 Academy Islington on Nov. 27th supporting Belau. You can get tickets for her headline show at The Hope and Ruin here, and tickets for her show at O2 Academy Islington with Belau, here.
With stamps of approval from tastemakers such as Spotify (NMF UK & The Pop List), The Guardian, Billboard, MTV, Attitude Magazine, NOISEY, Popjustice, Wonderland, CLASH, Missguided and BBC Radio (Introducing, Radio 1 & 1Xtra) as well as opening for artists such as Tove Styrke, Say Lou Lou, Nimmo, Bright Light Bright Light and 80s pop sensation Tiffany, it’s clear to see Salt Ashes is on the verge of becoming a household name.
