After winning Triple J’s Unearthed High Competition with ‘My Heart is On Fire‘, Asta is back with a new track called ‘Escape‘.
‘Escape’ features more of the in depth lyrics and husky, raw vocals that has made Asta so popular already. Its a clever mix of pop folk, laced with a undercurrent of indie electric buzz. The vocal hooks, and chorus in general are huge, and have this catchy element that burns the lyrics into your brain such that you cannot stop singing. I cannot get past the similarities to Ladyhawke both in vocals and in the style of Asta’s songs, but being a fan of both, I happy to have more than enough music to enjoy. Given that ‘My Heart is On Fire’ was a love song, the change in topic in ‘Escape’ is perhaps a good inclination that Asta is no one trick pony when it comes to song writing.
Asta has also been advertising her soundcloud profile, where she has allowed everyone to listen to the raw tunes from her next upcoming release. If your digging Asta as much as we are, be sure to check it out.
