Cork based singer-songwriter SAL has taken the first step on a new journey, with the addictive pop tune, ‘Bullet in the Heart’. The song has an 80s revival feel, while still including modern flavours and textures. This is a quite fitting introduction to SAL, as the release feels like something of a debut, even though she has already achieved so much in the industry.
“It’s a song about resilience in the face of loneliness and being in love…” says the Kildare native, “…while still being fearless of all that life throws at you in the midst of chaos”. Stylistically, the song features elements of electronic pop and contemporary R&B, creating a perfect soundscape to accompany SAL’s unmistakable vocals.
‘Bullet in the Heart’ was co-written by SAL with the late Scott English (writer of ‘Mandy’). It is the first release under the SAL pseudonym, as well as the first release since SAL signed a publishing deal with prestigious West Cork-based publishing company, AtSongs, and a management deal with London-based Charlie B Management.
Having unveiled a host of new material at Liverpool Irish Festival in 2021, SAL is ready to perform her new songs, with live shows in Ireland (Whelan’s, Dublin 5th May; and Cyprus Avenue, Cork 2nd June) as well as opening for Mica Paris at Woolwich Works, London on 23rd April, and a 12-date tour of Germany through May.
As well as going on the road, SAL will be releasing new material regularly in 2022, as she continues to write, evolve, and grow as an artist, with ‘Bullet in the Heart’ showcasing one colour on a wide spectrum, which will be revealed over a six song odyssey, released through the year.
‘Bullet in the Heart’ is officially released across all platforms on Friday April 8th.
