ASTR – It’s Over (Feat. Mick Jenkins)

ASTR

ASTR

Urban pop duo ASTR returns with ‘It’s Over’, featuring the vocals of Mick Jenkins.

‘It’s Over’ is an upbeat jam, but it is also about being drawn into a destructive relationship time and time again. This type of subversion is exhibited by the acceleration and deceleration of the track’s b.p.m. throughout, and we love the fact ‘It’s Over’ keeps us guessing on whether it really is over.

ASTR’s ‘Homecoming’ EP will be released in November.

Sounds like: Holychild, Carvaro, Outkast, Disclosure, Lights, Lady Gaga, Ellie Goulding, Ulla Nova, The Naked and Famous, I BREAK HORSES, BANKS

Cajsa Siik

Following her last album ‘Contra’, Swedish singer-songwriter Cajsa Siik releases her new video for ‘Change of Heart’, taken from her new double A-side single ‘State Of Low / Change Of Heart’.

The track is subtle, as is Silk’s vocals, and the ethereal and harmonious production gently bubbles away at the surface never quite emerging. We like that.

The single has been released via Birds Will Sing For You/X5 Music Group.
