Salt Ashes Releases New Single “Raided,” Available Now on Radikal Records

Salt Ashes - Raided

Emerging singer Salt Ashes releases her new single, “Raided” today, March 10th, 2015 on Radikal Records. Obsessed with Giorgio Moroder’s blend of disco and epic dark atmospheres, Salt Ashes, aka 22 year old Veiga Sanchez, broke into the dance music scene last year with the release of several singles and accompanying remixes.

“Raided” sees Salt Ashes building upon her unique blend of synth-pop, but taking her sound in a slightly darker direction. 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’.”


The music video for “Raided” was directed by Debbie Scanlan and Liz Adams of De La Muerte Films, who worked with Salt Ashes on her previous video for “If You Let Me Go.” In an interview with Wonderland Magazine Salt Ashes spoke on the video:

“I wanted to create something with a dark B-movie, late-night kind of vibe, probably because I’d been watching a lot of Neo-noir, thriller movies at the time. We wanted to create something trippy and surreal with the idea of allowing the viewer to decide what is and isn’t reality.”

“Raided” is available now for download on iTunes, Bandcamp, and Beatport. The single is also available for streaming on Spotify.

Wonderland Magazine Premieres Music Video for Salt Ashes ‘Raided’

Salt Ashes - Wonderland Magazine PremiereWonderland Magazine has just premiered the music video for Salt Ashes’ new single, ‘Raided.’ You can pre-order ‘Raided’ on iTunes now, with the track being released worldwide tomorrow, March 10th, 2015 on Radikal Records.

Salt Ashes’ strain of pop music explores the darkness in disco, with its deep, cold electronics matched with the light, almost shimmering tones of Sanchez’s voice. With her debut single, ‘Somebody’, Sanchez was eager to convey a break-up with industrial synths, arpeggiators, yearning vocal and a rather erotic video.

Building on that ‘Raided’ has more complexity in its materials. The sparse, house-y verses take tips from minimal R&B, while the vocal sits firmly in the ethereal. Meanwhile, driving percussion is matched with pumps of electronics, wooshing pads and a chorus that catches you with first listen. With the video, Sanchez is exploring her dark side again. “I wanted to create something with a dark B-movie, late-night kind of vibe,” she says, “probably because I’d been watching a lot of Neo-noir, thriller movies at the time.” - Alim Kheraj (Wonderland Magazine)

MTV Iggy Discusses Pop Artist Salt Ashes’ Latest Single, “If You Let Me Go”

Salt Ashes- MTV Iggy 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. “
