Melbourne songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and film composer Albert Salt has unveiled a DIY video clip for his stunning new single “25“. It’s the latest from his forthcoming EP and follows the jilted and hypnotic “Even Out“.
Salt flawlessly melds danceable bedroom pop with unrivalled musical intellect on “25”. It’s charming and heart-warming pop accessibility at its finest, resulting in something utterly unique yet suitably recognisable. Undoubtedly, it’s a stage-of-life wrangling – regaling the personal and passionate to form a retrospective quarter-life anthem.
Keeping in line with his isolation cover videos, Salt created a video entirely himself from his home studio. The result is nothing short of polished-solitary beauty. Tapping into the passion delivered throughout “25”, he celebrates the idea of dancing alone in your room, offering a powerful reminder that sometimes, we need to let it all out.
Salt’s forthcoming release marks a new beginning in a near decade-long career and is his first major body of work since the 2015 record Wilson Street. It’s also only the second venture without long-time collaborator and lyricist Patrick Dower, opting to write and produce himself, with mixing from Nick Bond (Flamingo Jones, Juno Disco). ‘I feel with this release; it’s a definitive new phase for myself as an artist’ he says. Expect further details about Salt’s forthcoming EP in the coming weeks.
