Salt Cathedral

Salt Cathedral's "Rudeboy" is an undeniable earworm

The latest single from Salt Cathedral proves that the dancehall inspired pop that has taken root in the mainstream hasn’t scared away any alt-pop artists from dipping their toes in this distinct style of music. “Rudeboy” features mercurial production, shifting from Caribbean percussion to a chopped up vocal sample that acts as a synth on the hook. The soft, pulsating beat is a backdrop for a song about breaking through unsureness and finding something truly real in a relationship. –Tucker Pennington

Salt Cathedral unveils single "Fragments" from upcoming debut LP

Bands, these days (electronic ones in particular) are not in a hurry to put out full length album. Many of them carry on releasing single after single, which are then gathered in EPs or compilation albums when enough songs have been churned out. Following the trend, NYC's Salt Cathedral has been releasing celestial, world music flavored synth-pop since 2013, and they finally announced the ucoming release of their debut LP, entitled 'Big Waves//Small Waves.' They did so by unveiling a preview single entitled 'Fragments," a song about the personal damage created by conflict, which confirms the band's talent so many times we praised in this very blog. Take a listen below.

New(YC) Releases: Salt Cathedral, Oberhofer, SKYES

Here at The Deli our efforts are mostly directed towards researching and covering new artists we never blogged, but of course there are a lot of bands we've already covered that release great new music that sometimes we don't have the time to highlight. Hence, this new, telegraphic appointment called 'New(YC) Releases" - because words aren't always necessary... Here are a bunch of new releases by great NYC artists that are not so emerging anymore (pictured: SKYES):


Salt Cathedral releases single 'No Ordinary Man' + plays Baby's All Right on 03.05

NYC based Colombians Salt Cathedral have been treating us to some really good synthpop with soul tinges in the last few years, and the magic isn't over yet. Check out their new, uber-mellow single 'No Ordinary Man,' released less than 24 hours ago, and don't miss their live show at Baby's All Right on March 5th.


Delicious Audio Feature: Salt Cathedral - see them live at Rough Trade on 12.19.

If you are fascinated with the idea of parallel worlds, you should immerse yourself in the music of Brooklyn’s (via Colombia) duo Salt Cathedral (the band will perform live at Rough Trade on December 19th). Their gently impressionistic arrangements and celestial atmospheres, combined with Juliana Ronderos’ angelic voice and melodies, might transport you to the closest thing to the seventh heaven you’ve ever experienced – or at least a dancey version of it. We asked Juliana a few questions about the band’s creative process, check out the link below.
