Bio

‘His music has an undeniable theatricality about it. In ways, his performance was reminiscent of Patrick Wolf, minus the eccentric costumes – although Salt’s maroon suit was one of sartorial splendour.’ (Matilda Marozzi - FasterLouder, 2012).
Since being announced as a Triple J Unearthed High finalist in 2011, Albert Salt has continued to climb his way up - and through - the crowded Melbourne music scene. Along with lyricist Patrick Dower and stage drummer Lachie Bubb, Albert has continued to refine his ‘strange yet unique and addictive blend of alternate rock, classical and electronic genres’ (Amy Bastow, 2012) and expressed this development in every tune he has created.
Following the release of his 2014 E.P. ‘June’, Albert was fortunate enough to tour with the infectiously mystical ‘Client Liaison’ and open for former Bloc Party front man ‘Kele’. These experiences, alongside support gigs for Boy & Bear, Jinja Safari, Cut off Your Hands, Owl Eyes, The McQueens & Julia Stone, have contributed substantially to the development of Albert’s musical ingenuity.
In August 2015, Albert released a two-track E.P. entitled ‘Hamilton’ – an introspective reflection upon the distant relationship he holds with his hometown in Western Victoria. These two tracks were written and recorded by Albert over a four-day visit to Hamilton, with his self-written lyrics reflecting the detachment and sense of inescapable solitude his isolation provoked.
Albert’s most recent release ‘Wilson Street’ was officially unveiled with a mesmerising performance at Ding Dong Lounge in December 2015. The album, his first in four years, contains ‘eight impressive examples of Albert Salt‘s incredible songwriting, vocal and instrumentation skills’ (Acidstag, 2015) and has been received with great acclaim – including being named SYN Radio’s Feature Album of the Week.
‘Wilson Street’ is available on Bandcamp for free download.

I know it's a sticking point, but I can't believe someone this young has such a grasp on mood, atmosphere and songcraft - i'm heading straight out to get this.
