In a unique creative process, purpl challenged herself to write Salad by drawing random words from a bag, resulting in an unconventional yet captivating love song.

Reflecting on the songwriting process, purpl shares: “I wrote salad in the most unconventional way – I put some random words in a bag and challenged myself to write a song using the first three words I pulled out. Those words were ‘salad’, ‘lean’ and ‘stir’. So using those three words I managed to write one of the best love songs I’ve ever written. Consisting of trip hop and 90’s elements, we wanted the production to pay homage to the musical roots of Bristol – our home.”
