#NEWMUSIC: SALT BY RUNNING RED LIGHTS


#NEWMUSIC



Born into a space between the notes of Fleetwood Mac and the words of Sylvia Plath - Toronto's indie-pop folk band Running Red Lights unveil their latest track.

The band detail the crafting process of - “Salt,” a song they did not see approaching:

"It was not the usual process of chiselling away at a block of granite with a pencil. The song fell out as fluid as a breeze through an open window. It wasn’t until afterwards that we could see a considerable contrast between the melody and the lyrics – but who were we to argue with divine will of the songwriting Gods? They intervened, as they so often do, at the most ill-timed moment...inside the basement washroom of a Toronto tavern. The idea was drunkenly captured as an iPhone voice memo, and demoed the following day. Despite the cheery, bright production, “Salt” is actually rather melancholy – touching on subjects of depression, social isolation and detachment. “Salt” was co-written and produced by award-winning songwriter Robyn Dell Unto, and it was the winner of the 2018 Canadian Songwriting Contest."
