Chilli Salt (Lyric Video)

The Breath

Recorded during the sessions for the band’s debut album, Carry Your Kin, ‘Chilli Salt’ has become a firm live favourite. It is a powerfully raw and raucously punchy song, where Connolly’s glorious voice soars over the electronic fabric of McCallum’s distinctive, layered soundworld.

Connolly’s songs pour forth from her own life in a torrent of meaning, excavating raw feeling with little in the way of defence. ‘Chilli Salt’ is about sexual politics, delivered with compelling emotional honesty and a powerful urgency.
