Sound of the Week: Salt Cathedral

Colombian duo Salt Cathedral release the bounce-worthy new single “Te Quiero Olvidar” taken from their forthcoming debut album due out this April on Ultra Music. “Te Quiero Olvidar” follows the December release of Salt Cathedral’s “CAVIAR”, also from their forthcoming debut, which NYLON called “as delectable as its title”. The song is an impassioned rejection of materialism in relationships and a celebration of the liberation that comes with it. With its Caribbean rhythms and fluttering electro-pop, “Te Quiero Olvidar” places Salt Cathedral in the higher ranks as they continue to flourish with their wonderfully expressive lyrical content and bold productions.

Salt Cathedral is the duo of Nico and Juli, genre-defying artists who effortlessly draw from the vanguard of electronic music, a scope of Caribbean rhythms, and Colombian dance culture to create an infectious sound that transcends borders. They have released a string of bold and acclaimed EPs and singles. Nico and Juli are both originally from Bogota, Colombia but met in the United States while attending Berklee College of Music. Their experiences in the US over the past decade lead them to experiment with the musical traditions they grew up with in new ways, which grew into their addictive sound that is as forward thinking as it is accessible.
