Salem Kpit

Watch Salem Bring The Goth-Punk Party To The K! Pit

Salem hit the new socially-distanced K! Pit for a half-hour jam of gothic party anthems

Following Higher Power last week, Southampton goth-punks Salem took to our new socially-distanced stage for the latest instalment of The K! Pit in association with Nordic Spirit.

Will Gould and co. blasted out a rowdy 30-minute set in our favourite London dive bar of Blondies, adhering to all necessary governmental COVID measures and with no audience. A weird setting for sure, especially for only their fifth-ever show.

It could’ve gone horribly wrong, but we just had so much fun. It was really amazing,” said Will after the set.

Playing a set in front of a camera at this point in the band’s career was a real privilege and we were super excited about playing The K! Pit too because it’s such a great thing to do. This is really the first time that anyone in the wider world will be able to see us, and it’s a great way to showcase what we do.”

Picking tracks from their recent self-titled EP – and making up the setlist on the fly toward the end – it’s an absolute belter of a performance.

Here’s the setlist: 

Fall Out Of Love
Doomed (For Each Other)
William, It Was Really Something
Sweet Tooth
Heaven Help Me
Destroy Me
