Salt Cathedral – Unraveling (ft. Matisyahu)

Future-pop duo Salt Cathedral have shared a new sick track called Unraveling which features American reggae artist Matisyahu. Salt Cathedral’s sparkling electro-pop production and Juliana Ronderos’ breezy voice meet the fiercely delivered vocals of Matisyahu, within what turns out to be an unusual yet compelling feast of different styles.

Speaking on the song’s inspiration, the band said: “For our sweet sixteen equivalent in Colombia, the “fiesta de quince (15)” we would gather with friends in parties called ‘Minitecas’ with a DJ, some lights, no princess gowns or suits, homemade sandwiches and Doritos, and we would couple dance to tropical rhythms such as salsa, merengue, reggaeton and champeta. Dancing is ingrained in our culture: We dance on weekends, at family gatherings, on New Years, and some even dance on Christmas. As we started to write new music, we realized we wanted to write songs people could move to — music that felt uplifting and fun.

We first reached out to collaborate with Matisyahu because of his ability and talent to write energizing, upbeat music. His classic, ‘King Without a Crown’, was a song we had grown up with, and we thought this could be a beautiful way to connect so much of our past with our desire for the present and the music we wanted to put out into the world.
