Salt Cathedral – “Good Winds”

Salt Cathedral - Good Winds

They told us so when, back in January, Salt Cathedral released b-side “Rainy Days” to the world and said it marked the end of their guitar era. They told us so and now they have shown us they weren’t making it up with a fantastic new tune, “Good Winds”, which forgoes the infectious skipping jangle of tracks past for a sound that is a touch cooler and more swirlsome.

Here Juliana Ronderos’ voice is softer and more melancholic than we are perhaps used to, but no less sweet and alluring. The repetition in her vocal opens into synths and prodding drums that breathe an autumnal sadness into the song; as the relationship changes and dies a little only to be perked up by optimistic melodies and the subtle violent determination of the beat that says this is not over.

They’ve not been with us that long, but Salt Cathedral have already shown their ability to mix it up and more importantly, an inability to make a poor tune. Their third EP, OOM VELT, is due out in the coming months and promises to be one that should not be missed.
