UK alt-rockers SALTLAKE make a triumphant return with their engrossing new single, Bitter Pill – https://youtu.be/vuR5soLuMHk
SALTLAKE have engineered a sound that merges hooky choruses with expansive and soaring guitar work, and a beefy rhythm section that will blow the roof right off. The Sussex rockers are a trio with their roots firmly embedded in modern alternative rock. With their hard hitting, high octane live shows, the crew resemble rock giants of days gone by, yet their fresh sound will drop you straight back in the present day for something new and invigorating.
The UK tunesters have been making waves on the scene since the release of 2017’s Medicate Me EP, which placed the up-and-comers on the map. The release was widely lauded by Alex Baker at Kerrang! Radio, with the EP’s lead track, Badlands – racking multiple plays and unequivocal support. Since then, the alt-rockers have notched up further praise from Planet Rock, Kerrang! Radio, Dead Press, Hard Rock Hell Radio, Moshville and Maximum Volume Music.
The threesome are now primed to move up the ladder again with the release of their hugely anthemic new single, Bitter Pill. The single effortlessly balances melodic hooks with razor sharp riffery, framed by a thoughtful arrangement, and electronic soundscapes. Vocalist and guitarist, Henry Gottelier, remarks about the track: “Bitter Pill is a metaphor for the struggles of everyday life—being lost in a society that you just don’t seem to fit into, and the anxiety that comes with that—being the person that someone relies on, but never having it returned.”
With a flow of material planned for next year, as well as a series of profile live shows, 2020 is destined to be the band’s big year.
