We say

Released last Friday, Girls is RotD favourite Salt Ashes' first new material since releasing her sublime self-titled debut in 2016. Co-written with the band Born Stranger and produced by Tom Fuller, the track builds on her polished blend of disco noir and dark-pop with big, bassline hooks and an infectiously deviant beat. Destined to be played loud on dark dancefloors, the track is about "breaking the stereotypes of people who want to express themselves and their sexuality freely without the 'slut shaming' or being told that they’re 'asking for it'". Girls has already been included in Spotify’s UK New Music Friday and The Pop List, as well as Pop Justice and Kick Kick Snare’s tastemaker playlists, along with features on The Line of Best Fit, Born Music, Pressplayok, and Breaking More Waves. Having earned stamps of approval from the likes of the Guardian, Billboard, MTV, Noisey, and BBC Radio (Introducing, Radio 1 & 1Xtra), Salt Ashes is an artist to watch and Girls, a gorgeous addition to her catalogue. For fans of Tove Lo, Grimes & Kylie.
