Serving up a sultry new track carrying a hard-hitting message is electronica artist Salt Ashes with “Lucy”. Riding a synth-heavy production filled with warming bass lines and tones, the artist croons over the enticing rhythm and pulls us into a dance-ready soundscape. Tapping into a serious topic for the track, the artist tackles themes of sexual assault throughout the lyricism, while tacking a tongue-in-cheek approach.
Speaking of the song and video’s inspiration, Salt Ashes said: “I 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 “gave him a look” and in his words “what I was wearing was too sexy to not be interested”.
Based in London, the artist first burst on the scene with her self-titled debut album back in 2016. Now gearing up to drop her new album Killing My Mind this November, expect nothing but hits from the artist in the coming months.
