3 new music releases – listen here!

In the last month, we have released not one…not two…but three new releases…with the final release being today! So lucky you…you will get to hear it first.

Salt of the Sound – ‘Through the Mist’

Our brand new EP ‘Through the Mist’ contains 6 brand new tracks, based on the theme found in 1 Corinthians 13v12:

We don’t yet see things clearly. We’re squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won’t be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us!

You can read more about it and listen to a preview over at the Salt of the Sound website (Before you buy it here!)

Having received fantastic reviews for our first album did add an element of pressure – to really do justice to the music we were writing for this latest EP.  In this way, we have been challenged to really make progress with our music, whilst still maintaining the overall meditative sound that we have created with Salt of the Sound.

Salt of the Sound ‘meditations’ (Instrumental Album)

Looking for some background music in your life?  We have the perfect dinner party / social gathering / study music / pre or post-church service (basically, it works on so many levels for so many things) playlist for you.  We have also released a full length album of Instrumental tracks.  Download it here or listen on Spotify.

This album has already been recognised by several chillout playlists – including some non-Christian podcasts. Yes – we write as Christian musicians but it is great to see our music being used in so many different settings!

How you can support us:

We are independent artists and write and produce all of our own music.  We simply trust that God will take our music and use it for His glory. So if you like what you hear, here are some ways you can support our music ministry:

Changing Seasons

Anita & Ben on boat

This year, I experienced my first complete Summer in Sweden (and luckily for me – it was a hot one!). The Swedes love the summer months, and after their long, dark winters, are known for embracing the summer sun in all its glory.

Midsummer is a big celebration in Sweden in June…but we missed most of this as we got the keys to our new flat 2 days before midsummer so you’ll have to wait until next year to hear my thoughts on this one…

The strangest thing I found about summer in Sweden is that everything closes down and everyone goes on holiday…I already knew this but the reality of it is bizarre.  People take 4-5 weeks holiday and just leave the city.  Cafes and restaurants close. The tubes run a very limited service. Things just stop. It’s actually quite nice…as long as you don’t need anything doing with any kind of urgency!

So what did we do during the long summer when the sun never seems to sleep?  Well, alongside working; we fitted in some days at the beach, swimming in the lakes, joined some friends on their boat, enjoyed our new surroundings in Stockholm (including a few day trips out & about), took a staff trip to Tallinn, Estonia and this week, we said goodbye to the summer and welcomed the cooling autumn breeze with a trip to Yasuragi, a Japanese spa in Stockholm.

Now, I wait for all that autumn has to bring with anticipation – a season of change, creativity & expectation is upon us and I look forward to discovering what it holds in store…

What is your favourite season? Are you longing for the fading summer or looking forward to cold winds of autumn & winter?
