90’s Indie band Salad return with Under The Wrapping Paper the first single from their long awaited new studio album, The Salad Way, set for release on August 30th.
Salad stood out from the Brit Pop Scene with a loud quiet loud ethic coupled with the sultry vocals of Marijne van der Vlugt on anthems more comparable to Pixies than Sleeper. Under The Wrapping Paper comes at you like a stream of consciousness. Marijne’s ‘conversational’ vocals are fused with searing guitars and a throbbing bassline with some impressionistic piano occasionally creeping in and out.

They released their hit debut album Drink Me in 1995 featuring singles Drink the Elixir and Motorbike to Heaven. Follow up Ice Cream (1997) was produced by Donald Ross Skinner, with Charley Stone joining as a live member in 1996.
