Off the back of their successful debut EP release in 2022, indie-folk duo Salt Tree are picking things up again for 2023 with the delivery of a striking new track in Coming Home To You.
The single represents the songwriting dynamic between both Tom Boerema and Nathan Parsons beautifully; melodically rich, and full of warmth in tone and delivery, Coming Home To You is a perfect way to remind long-time fans and newcomers alike of Salt Tree’s clear and present talent as storytellers.
Recorded in Margaret River in a shipping container, Coming Home To You was produced and mixed by Boerema, adding to the clarity and precision of the song’s overall direction. Elevating each other in studio and generally as a duo, both Boerema and Parsons shine on this record as, lyrically, they navigate themes of home, nature and being at one with it all.
“We both grew up close to the ocean and around nature, which has always been a huge part of our lives. As a kid, Nath would take any chance he got to surf, even if it meant skipping school. Tom spent a lot of time sailing, with his whole family living on a boat for months at a time.” SALT TREE
With the band members sharing a deep love for nature and the ocean — both themes that have been felt throughout their material to date — it’s not a complete surprise that their new music would feature this core interest as a prominent part of its DNA. But with Coming Home To You, Salt Tree take this road trip soundtrack-ready energy and amplify it, positioning the single as a surefire favourite on the live stage.
In just a short period of time, Salt Tree’s profile has risen impressively; clocking over 300,000 monthly listeners on Spotify alone. Since the release of their debut single She’s The One two years ago, Salt Tree have amassed a whopping 10 million streams — Coming Home To You certainly set to add to the running total.
“This is our first proper tour outside of WA. We’ve played a bunch of sold out shows around WA over the past couple of years; and we’re super excited about seeing some new places, meeting new people and playing music!” SALT TREE
