A Deli Premiere: "Wasted" video by Oakland's Saalt

The debut video (streaming below) of Oakland stoner-pop group Saalt (fronted by Alisa Saario) follows a similar pattern to that of a strange dream. Saario is pictured singing while skiing down a mountain, maneuvering her way through the powerful chorus of the track “Wasted” while dressed in an all-white ski-suit. When combined with the clips of her skiing with her guitar, or emptying out pink dust around the mountain, the overall picture only becomes more ethereal. Despite her unquestionable recklessness, Saario’s vocals and her carefree smile coax you into her world — as if saying, don’t worry about me. She almost convinces you, even, but the last frame tells a different story. Check out the video below and keep an eye out for future releases from one of our favorite artists right now. - Lilly Milman 


Saalt plays music video release show at The Milk Bar (5.16)

If you haven’t listened to the debut EP (Y) by Saalt, the musical creation of Alisa Saario, then you need to do yourself a favor. Soon. The moody slacker pop of the Oakland songstress is fantastical in its ability to marry the lo-fi with the energetic. This release makes use of kinetic energy; despite the dreamy and distant nature of her vocals, songs like “Wasted” (streaming below) still come off as anthemic and replay-able. There’s no one doing anything quite like Saario right now in Oakland, meaning that her music video release show at the Milk Bar on May 16th is unmissable. - Lilly Milman
