Roseau, AKA Kerry Leatham, has made the brilliant debut album she's long promised to. As well as appearances on acclaimed records from Lapalux and DELS, Bonobo's Late Night Tales, and tours with Lianne La Havas, and Laura Mvula, anticipation for her debut album as Roseau has been running high. Marrying stories about modern life both rubbish and wondrous to bold, chiming, futuristic pop, Salt is a stunning record. Leatham's talent for writing, her purposeful experiments and her mastery of several instruments as well as electronic production techniques, add up to a powerful arsenal. Inspired by a chance exploration of a giant abandoned warehouse beside a walk Leatham loves. Finding herself in a vast space with various objects she made as many sounds as possible - then she came back, day after day, to record them. The album's songs contain powerful themes; about the devastation of first heartbreak, the aftermath and numbness; about belonging, or not; and about self-confidence and it's absence.
