NYC duo, ASTR debuts "Bleeding Love" + tours with Ryn Weaver and Holychild

New York City’s ASTR is a two-person operation: Zoe Anna on vocals and Adam Pallin handling production. After meeting in a Manhattan yoga studio, they started writing music together. Soon enough, with a shared love of deep house, '90s hip-hop, film noir and R&B, ASTR was born. Their new single "Bleeding Love" (streaming), delivers one of their most radio friendly tunes, without entirely giving up their atmospheric tendencies. ASTR will release the "Homecoming" EP later this year, and will be hitting the road in November as tour support for Ryn Weaver and Holychild.


NYC duo ASTR debut single and video for “Operate”

Keeping secret identities, rising R&B electropop artists ASTR are testing the waters with slick, slightly sinister club bangers. The “NYC Duo” mixes processed vocals, 808s and heavy bass drops, producing dance tracks that sound like they came from a seasoned hit factory. Dark undertones ground their handful of high-gloss tracks, but they never dive into the creep-pop or drug-stupor of influences like Purity Ring and The Weeknd. The pair’s latest single is a radio-friendly earworm called “Operate.” The twitchy, washed-out companion video borrows from NIN’s, “Closer,” with blood, guts and silent film footage spliced between shots of the glam, unknown singer, whose “Operate, Oh-oh” has a tinge of Caribbean accent. The sleuth behind the buttons remains a mystery. - Bianca Seidman
