Back with us is the emerging artist with a flair for dark pop and disco boogie all tightly bound together in the outer reaching ethereal realness of her heart-leaping vocal, we refer of course, to the luminescent pop chanteuse Salt Ashes, who earlier this year brought us a radiantly sumptuous debut release in the sweet sonic format of “Somebody”.
For now, it’s all about the sophomore single drop of “If You Let Me Go”, which has lived a life already in that it was written and produced whilst sleeping on floors between Ibiza, New York and Berlin.

Add an aside of Salt Ashes spellbindingly esoteric Kate Bush like steeped vocals and we have before us EQ’s what is known as a bit of an alt-pop leaning disco-pop infused banger.
