Salt Cathedral are one of the first artists we seriously started "tracking" when we started Stereofox.
The New York-based experimental / electronic / pop duo have undoubtedly amazing signature sound which has been evolving throughout the past few years and things are about to hit culmination with their debut album Big Waves//Small Waves scheduled for later this year.
Today's highlight is a track off that record titled "Fragments". Super smooth and gentle, until the duo drops their surprise production surprise towards the end. I had a chance to briefly talk to Nico from Salt Cathedral and he shared the inspiration behind the song - it's about "how conflict just breaks us apart" which is reflected in the lyrics and Juli's mesmerizing voice. I rarely pay attention to the words, but when it comes to Salt Cathedral it's a must.
and when you shut me out my limbs try to branch apart fall defeated
The thing I absolutely love about the song is build-up towards the end of the track. Super intense & powerful.
