Astrid S ~ Hurts So Good


Who is ASTRID S?  An extraordinary songstress from Norway!

My first impression of “Hurts So GoodAn emotionally charged electronic pop number centered around an inner obsession of wanting something with every inch of irrationality within, regardless of any personal consequences!

My take :  Relationships come in many different sizes and experiences but those that stand out the most are the ones that completely consume us.  “Hurts So Good” by the brilliant ASTRID S, highlights this kind of absorbing relationship with a powerful depiction of how hard it can be to deal with falling for someone who plays games.  Beautifully combining a straightforward electro pop style with a soft yet intensely suffocating vocal, ASTRID S throws the listener directly into a world of unrequited affections and conflicting emotions.  Where most of the answers seem to be clear on the surface but following through in the moment feels impossible to do!

“Hurts So Good” is a compelling song taken from the debut EP Astrid S released back in May, and shows a lot of promise for the rising Norwegian star.  Be sure to check her out in the states as she is set to tour with Troye Sivan starting in October!

Born in sunny San Diego and raised in central Illinois. I graduated from the University of Illinois @Urbana-Champaign and spent the better part of 10 years in sunny Phoenix Arizona after graduation. I now reside in Savoy IL and I try to make it up to the Chicago music scene as much as I can. Music has always been a part of my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
