While browsing music selections for last week’s Music Monday, ASTR came across our radar. “R U With Me” made it on our roundup, but we knew a follow up Music Monday Special was needed on this unique pair. Their style and sound is as authentic as their own past and ascent into the music world.

ASTR is a duo that lives, works and writes music in New York City. After meeting a few years ago in a Manhattan yoga class, they discovered they shared a musical and artistic sensibility informed by cinema noire, Miami Vice and urban dreamscapes. ASTR was soon born.

Zoe is a New York native and former major label refuge. After a hiatus from music to explore the world via spirituality she met Adam, a recovering vinyl addict with a penchant for 60’s / 70’s cinema scores, Disco, and the fingers for anything with keys (vintage synths, guitar and bass).

ASTR’s Varsity EP is out now, you can get it via iTunes and Google Play. Browse through the links below for more on the band and check out our curated ASTR content below:
