Melbourne songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and film composer Albert Salt has delivered another gleaming cut with Family Tree. Self-produced, performed and recorded by Salt himself, the track navigates the demise of a relationship and no longer knowing someone you were once close to.
Speaking of the visual, Salt shares: “I had been listening to Silversun Pickups and was very influenced by the vocal harmonies and delivery they used in their song Lazy Eye which I think you can hear in Family Tree. After I had recorded the instrumental I got to work on the lyrics. With my most recent EP and last single I had drawn from extremely personal situations to write the lyrics, and found that it had been my best work despite it being very revealing and intimidating. I decided to go down the same path with this song and it explores the aftermath of the ending of close friendship but framed in a way to make it appear as if it was a romantic relationship.”
Salt had a massive 2020, working and releasing his latest EP 25 Not Doing Alright, scoring his debut feature film, working on new Juno Disco material whilst also recording and releasing YouTube covers from his home studio.
