SALT’s music is a unique rendition of progressive punk rock music. The band is distinct among its contemporaries-Midnight Oil, The Clash, and U2 – Salt dawns on a new modern punk (munk) genre. Salt’s unique sound projects what mainstream defines as high caliber rock music.

Get ready for a breathtaking dive into munk. Brace yourself for the explosion of SALT to the world.

Salt “attempts to lure you on a journey of sounds that allows your imagination to delight in a tapestry of color and flavor encapsulating music influences from both past and present”.

Salt, true to its name, offers you a taste of well-blended rock/surf/munk with a mark of ingenuity.
Perfect to the last note; this group is more than crafting rhythms, also reinventing what progressive rock can offer to the world.

Their first album, Radio Station, is an awe-inspiring outthrust of rock in its fusion with blues and dance rhythms. It is a promising start for a band, venturing into an original genre.


Composed of Brett McGuigan (Bass/Vocals/Song writer), Mike Nelson (Lead and Rhythm Guitar/ Backing Vocals), Fernando Gomez (Drums), and Rachael Jane (Keys/Backing Vocals), the band goes far in introducing their music mainstream and into the world. Feel the groove, live the beat, join the new movement of progressive rock in its new taste. Salt– the new rock/surf/munk to season the mainstream.

Salt assembled as a band in September 2010 in Christchurch New Zealand to produce unique rock music. The band has more than a decade of experience composing songs and performing live in Christchurch. Their promising talent captured the attention of Voodoo Recording Studios and Sunset Records, helping them bring you the album, “Radio Station”.

Salt is set to release a second EP soon heading into Quicksand Recording Studios early April 2014.  Heed to this breathtaking munk phenomenon, the anticipated revolution of progressive rock in full season.
