Love, Love (rel 6.08.21 via Radikal Records) is the second single taken from Salt Ashes highly anticipated upcoming 2nd album and the latest product of her mission to bring a refreshing and dark edge to the world of pop music.
Love, Love is a hymn to unrequited love. Salt Ashes returns with her signature sound – smooth synth-pop blended with punchy bass lines, introspective lyrics and an immaculate self-confidence.
Salt Ashes says: “This is a song for all the commitment-phobic people out there. 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.“
