24 Hour Blogathon : Salt Ashes - Little Dove
It’s been nice to see a growing cluster of music blogs becoming acquainted and endorsing Brighton’s Salt Ashes, particularly with recent song Somebody, it’s dark disco throb finding love in all sorts of places. Now comes the b-side, which is a weird concept when you’re streaming music or downloading it from iTunes isn’t it?
If Somebody showed a pop heart beating on the dance floor then Little Dove sounds like the walk home from the club after. The music has a sultry late night undertow, a hip grinding twang and a sense of distance and loneliness. Fans of the likes of Banks or FKA Twigs might be converted with this one. “I’ll be waiting for you to change me,” she sings. Well this tune’s certainly a change from Somebody not being as instantly accessible, but don’t let that put you off, in the longer term it oozes just as much quality.
This blog post is one of a series published as part of Breaking More Waves non-stop 24 hour Blogathon to raise money for Cancer Research UK. If you have read this post and enjoyed it or the music we’d really appreciate it if you would donate £2 to Cancer Research using the button below.
