So, on the one month anniversary of sharing our first ever song on the net, I thought it would be good to kick off our first ever blog post with a bit of an update on how things have progressed to date.
This is Ben, by the way, producer/synth-programmer/percussionist/occasional backing-vocalist of the duo, and I’ll be looking after this blog for the time being. I might ask Anita to guest post on occasion, we’ll see!
One of the most rewarding aspects of our adventure as Salt Of The Sound thus far has been the wonderful comments we’ve received over at Soundcloud, from listeners across the world who have been kind enough to share their responses to our music. We’ve also taken the first steps in developing a small community on Facebook, as well as setting up presences on Twitter and Youtube. These networks are going to be so vital for us as we seek to compose music that is reflective, thought-provoking and meaningful for our listeners – there’s only so much objectivity the writers of a song can bring to the table!
And of course we’ve been hard at work on the album – we’ve currently got between 4 and 7 tracks in a 80% complete form (depending on how much my perfectionist tendencies come through). It’s the typical 80 / 20 scenario, of course, whereby the first 80% of the work takes 20% of the time, and vice versa until the final song emerges in a final form, fuelled by late nights and maybe one too many espressos…
The album’s scheduled for release in the Autumn, but do keep an eye on this blog (or sign up for our mailing list above) to be kept in the loop with exciting previews and other goodies we will no doubt be sharing in the coming weeks!
So in closing, I just wanted to thank you for visiting the site – and reading the entirety of this first blog post! – your support really does mean everything to us.
