It can be difficult to stand by someone you love when they’re going through a tough time. You want to help, but you know you can’t take away their pain. Wytiki’s new single, Salt, perfectly expresses this feeling. It talks about the frustration of not being able to do anything, and the desire to make things better.
When you first listen to Salt, it’s the strong electronic beat that catches your attention immediately. It’s dark, gloomy, and seems to undermine the delicate strings and acoustic guitar. But as you listen further, you realize that it’s the perfect accompaniment to the lyrics. The strings and acoustic guitar represent the deep love you feel, while the electronic beats represent the heavy and threatening side. This contrast is what makes the song so remarkable.
