Salt Ashes – Lucy

5 November, Salt Ashes will release her sophomore album Killing My Mind. Ahead of that, Lucy is the latest single off it. The track combines raw synth textures and reverberated guitars with a relentlessly driving and pulsating rhythm section. Lyrically, it’s equally fierce and hard-hitting. The song speaks out against violence towards women.

Salt Ashes explains: β€œI wrote the song after an experience I had at a petrol station when I was filling up my car. A man was opposite me getting his own fuel and was staring at me. I awkwardly, but politely, smiled at him which he took as an invitation to come over and harass me. I apparently β€˜gave him a look’ and in his words β€˜what I was wearing was too sexy to not be interested’. This kind of thing happens all the time and it has to stop. The change does not come from me wearing something different but from men changing their behaviour.”

Salt Ashes is Brighton-born, London-based singer Veiga Sanchez. Inspired by Giorgio Moroder’s blend of disco and epic dark atmospheres, she released her debut album in 2016. Subsequently, she toured with artists such as Alphabeat, Say Lou Lou, Tove Styrke, Little Boots and β€˜80s pop sensation Tiffany.
