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).
Happy Monday! -MK
