MTV Iggy covers pop artist Salt Ashes’ latest single, “If You Let Me Go” and here’s what they had to say:
“Salt Ashes wants to dominate the dance floor — provided, that is, that everyone at the club is clad in black. Sure, she might be a material girl at heart (aren’t we all?) but the Brighton, England-based singer (née Veiga Sanchez) is out to provide an arty alternative to the Technicolor tunes of Madonna and her spandex-clad followers. “

If you missed it last night, Phil Taggart over at BBC1 Radio featured Salt Ashes‘ follow-up single “If You Let Me Go” on his evening radio show after discovering the song via a fan on Twitter. You can stream the live broadcast on their website here. Here’s what Phil had to say when presenting the record: “Apparently that track was made by sleeping on floors in New York, Ibiza and Berlin. If that’s the quality of a track sleeping on people’s floors, imagine if she had a week in the studio…bit of Kate Bush in there…loving it!’”

If you haven’t yet, head over to Attitude Magazine to read up on Salt Ashes’ interview on the inspiration behind “Somebody,” her upcoming projects, being compared to Kylie Minogue, and the origins of her name (it comes from a boat!) Check out an excerpt below of the interview, and head here to read it in its entirety! Oh and if you haven’t already purchased Salt Ashes’ latest single “Somebody” make sure you get it on iTunes today!
Somebody was, in fact, inspired by a break-up.
“The song is basically about that shit period you have to go through just after a break-up. It’s all of those emotions that you feel when you’re bumping into your ex at a club and seeing them with another person. You can hear in the song that he walks into the club with another girl and it fucking kills you, doesn’t it?”
The song’s video, is, erm, a bit NSFW…
“The steamy element wasn’t really in my vocabulary when I was thinking about the video. What I wanted was passion, fire and aggressiveness because fundamentally that’s what the song is about. It’s about that raw passion between people, then breaking up and still feeling that passion but feeling aggressive towards them. I wanted all that pushing and pulling.”
Despite being referred to as the “S&M Kylie”, Salt Ashes doesn’t really hear much of La Minogue in her music. However, she really doesn’t mind the comparison.
“I think with any any artist, the natural thing to want to do is relate it to something that you’ve heard – so you know where to place it. I think that Somebody is definitely very Kylie. I’m not going to deny it. It’s kind of a dark Kylie. I don’t mind, really. I think I’m going to be continuously compared to people. The aim is to be as individual as possible, which can be difficult as the industry is so saturated with new musicians. But as long as I’m trying then I’m happy.”
