The first single from the EP is the atmospheric, harmony drenched pop weirdness of “Semi-Pro Gamer”.

The ‘European Vacation’ EP was born from a project that saw Salter traverse Europe for five months, collaborating with as many songwriters and artists as possible.

As sonically and thematically varied as its inception suggests; the ‘European Vacation’ EP flits between genres as steadily as Salter moved from country to country on his travels.

So the theme of the EP is the journey itself – roaming unexplored territory looking for inspiration and finding it in some unexpected places. With tracks embellished and polished at Nowhere Audio, a small studio in Brisbane’s West End, Salter cements himself as one of the country’s most gifted singer/songwriters.
