Salt Cathedral have shared their brand new single via Noisey – infectious, dancehall-inspired anthem ‘Run For The Money’ featuring Assasssin (aka Agenst Sasco, renowned for his collaboration with Kendrick Lamar on The Blacker The Berry and with Kanye West on Yeezus). ‘Run For The Money’ addresses the struggle of working to succeed, of putting your all into your passions, along with hustling to survive. Noisey called the track “ethereal and sexy as a silk chemise on sun-kissed skin.”

In singer Juli Ronderos’ words: “’Run For The Money’ is the representation of the hard work that it takes to succeed – the hustle both to survive and to be personally satisfied. To get to the great stuff you have to remain in motion, work hard, work longer and later than others and really strive for that “gold”!! – i.e, the best of your own work.

“For this song, and the record, we were very inspired by our Colombian yearn for dancing as well as Caribbean culture and music—the latter of which is very vibrant in our Brooklyn neighborhood. We were really lucky to get Assassin, an insane talent and a very strong exponent of Jamaican and dancehall culture on this track.”

The duo have just announced their debut album via Consequence of Sound, Big Waves/Small Waves is slated for release this year (date tbc). The record features collaborations with dancehall singer, dub pioneer and legend Lee Scratch Perry and Brooklyn’s own Matisyahu, with whom the duo recently released the infectious single Unraveling at the end of 2016.

Performing at SXSW and other festivals alongside the highly anticipated debut album release, 2017 is set to be the year of Salt Cathedral. Big Waves/Small Waves follows two widely acclaimed EPs and a handful of singles that have earned the band millions of streams on Spotify. Inspired by their Colombian upbringing, and the predominantly Jamaican neighborhood they live in, the record is brimming with Caribbean rhythms, confrontational vocals and mesmerizing melodies. The New York-based duo’s unique and progressive stylings will no doubt see them soar to even greater heights in 2017.
