Now that Kylie Minogue is being everyone’s sweetheart on BBC1's The Voice and sitting on one of those big red spinning chairs (have they played Spinning Around yet – they really have to don’t they?), we need someone to keep her other
It isn’t of course, Somebody is the new single by Brighton’s Salt Ashes (real name Veiga Sanchez). You may remember her from way back here or a bit more recently here with a rather decent Depeche Mode cover. Somebody (also the title of a Depeche Mode tune, but this one is an original) feels like the first ‘proper’ release though, whatever that means these days, with artists uploading and removing tracks from the internet quicker than the speed a prostitutes knickers go up and down.
So now that we’ve agreed (yes we can see you nodding) that there’s undeniably a hint of the Minogue’s to the song, let’s also agree that musically this one’s a sexy pulsing Moroderesque electronic disco-beast with synths that swirl and romp as if they’ve given up any hope of maintaining any degree of decency and have just got straight down to it.
Somebody is released on the 17 February but for now you can stream it here.
