Astrid S has taken on the role of the other woman in her new song Closer.
Lyrically, it’s a more subtle version of Robyn’s Call Your Girlfriend but musically she channels a very gentle, RnB-leaning pocket of pop.
If we’re able to throw in just one more Robyn comparison allow us to say that Astrid sings with this softness in her voice similar to what Robyn channelled on Honey. This could’ve been an extremely aggressive song but Astrid pulls it back for a beautiful restrained performance.
Closer is her second release of the year following on from Emotion which was just as great.
