London based electronic pop musician Salt Ashes’ latest single Lucy is a fiery and hard-hitting statement against the violence and objectification of women, taken from the forthcoming album Killing My Mind.

A concoction of rhythmic synths and electric guitars that are drenched in effects, Salt Ashes, also known as Veiga Sanchez, blends in perfectly with the rising intensity of the instruments, delivering her message of defiance with yells and screams. With the Lucy of the title referring to every woman that shares the experience of harassment, the meaning behind the lyrics hit home for the artist just as much as the audience.

“​​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.” Say’s the Brighton born singer, speaking of the song’s inspiration. “I knew it would be a difficult subject to tackle, especially with the Sarah Everard case being so raw right now for everyone but behaviours need to change and change starts with a conversation.”

After the release of her self-titled debut album all the way back in 2016, Salt Ashes has been releasing incredible single after single ever since. The rise to success has also been met with recognition along the way, with The Guardian, Billboard, and MTV all waiting for the upcoming album Killing My Mind.
