Salt Ashes is back with “Love, Love,” the second preview of her upcoming sophomore album.
On the track, Veiga Sanchez, aka Salt Ashes, sings about being urged to give more of herself than she’s ready to hand over. Whether it’s the early stages of a relationship or unrequited love, Veiga’s reflective lyrics and sharp delivery hit right in the soul of anyone ever caught in the same situation. The song’s punchy bassline and clubby electro-pop synths, meanwhile, provide the perfect soundtrack for clearing your mind on the dancefloor.
“This is a song for all the commitment-phobic people out there,” shares Salt Ashes. “I wrote it when I started dating an old friend… I couldn’t get my head clear on what I wanted, which is unusual for me, or the worry of it ruining our friendship if it didn’t work out. Normally I’d do a runner at the first sight of a relationship getting even slightly serious, but this had me questioning whether to try staying for once and giving it a go.”
“Love, Love” arrives with a self-directed music video showing Salt Ashes held captive by an obsessed stalker. Further pushing the song’s edgy lines, the dark visual adds a chilling aspect while demonstrating the boundaries the Brighton-born singer will push on the follow-up to her eponymous 2016 debut album.
