5 Indie Artists You Should Hear – ASTR

ASTR is an electronic/alternative/R&B duo from New York City. The band formed three years ago when Zoe Anna (vocals) and Adam Pallin (production) met in a Manhattan yoga class. They shared a musical and artistic sensibility informed by 90s hip-hop, R&B, deep house, cinema noire, Miami Vice and urban dreamscapes and decided to channel these influences into their unique sound.

Sometimes ASTR’s music will take you to an after party on the Dead Sea. Sometimes you’ll feel as if you’re alone somewhere in Iceland, lowering yourself into a natural hot spring. Or maybe you’re dancing on the edge of Heaven pondering eternity. Wherever their music takes you, you’ll feel a complex mix of emotions that ASTR effortlessly evokes through their equally complex and interesting songs.

ASTR will release their highly anticipated Homecoming EP this year, and will tour with Ryn Weaver and Holychild.
