Time to get re-familiar with Astrid S!
The Norwegian pop princess, who I introduced in August of last year, is back in the swing of things.
After documenting a dysfunctional relationship on the brilliant “Emotion” back in October, Astrid comes with her latest single “Closer” from a very different perspective. Specifically capturing the emotional tug-of-war of falling for someone who isn’t just hers.
“Closer, pulling me closer/ Closer, I want you closer/ Tell her, tell her that it’s over/ Now we’re closer/ Closer…,” Astrid sings across the minimalistic production that drifts between simple acoustics and electro-pop beats. Yupp, Astrid‘s the “Other Woman” in this situation, and she doesn’t care about it.
It’s bold, honest and completely SAVAGE unrequited love anthem! I stan.
