ASTR seems to have risen out of nowhere and their track “Operate” has once again solidified itself into my collection of top-favourites since it’s initial release several months ago. I was absolutely ecstatic to see that their whole EP was finally released. This whole collection is everything I expected and more, apparently it was no trouble following up “Operate” with several more powerhouse synth pop tunes.
“We Fall Down” follows the trend of heavy synths and muffled vocals. Though it starts off with some pleasant seagull samples, it doesn’t waste any time getting to their signature sound. Melodies and synths galore, this track is a wonderful addition to their repertoire.
“Blue Hawaii” is the second of their latest additions. This introduces more of an R&B vibe, one that was also prsesent in their cover of Drake’s “Hold On (We’re Going Home)”. They somehow manage to combine their heavy sound with the rhythm of R&B – it works beautifully.
You may have heard some of their tracks, “R U With Me” and “Razor” and these two new additions really make this EP come together perfectly. I can definitely say that we look forward to seeing what this incredibly talented duo has for us this year.
