Salt Ashes returns with her third single, “Raided,” a ferocious concoction of brooding, dance-infused instrumentation, with an unmistakably pop leaning hook. Inspired by the underground club scene in Berlin, “Raided” sees Salt Ashes taking her unique blend of electronic pop into a darker, more mysterious place, and has put her in the company of singers like Kate Bush and Madonna.
Clash Magazine, who premiered the track, spoke with Salt Ashes about her inspiration behind the single.
“A friend took me to an underground club in Berlin that reminded me of Warhol’s ‘Factory’. Everyone seemed to be escaping the outside world, hiding whatever secret or story they had. I became fascinated by them and tried to imagine what their real stories were which lead me to write ‘Raided’.”
