Norwegian songbird Astrid S will be headlining the Independent in San Francisco on September 30th, but I’ve egregiously missed out on snagging a ticket before it sold out. I’m going to see if I can cleverly trawl up a reasonably priced ticket. Until then, I’m going to pretend my mission was victorious by bouncing triumphantly to this rocket fueled remix of Astrid S’ Breathe by a mysterious producer, also from Norwegian, named Ava. His melodic house edit is super charged and steely edged, as if dipped in an ample dose of future house. You can download the remix for free, here.

UK dance troupe Blonde and ever magnetic Norwegian chanteuse Astrid S make for a divine pairing on the producers’ new song Just For One Night. Blonde sheds their deep thumping house beats for fleecy light, iridescent and effervescent future pop jabs on the single, which come perfectly accompanied by Astrid S’ sweet and limber vocals. Just For One Night, which Blonde co-wrote with RAYE’s Rachel Keen and co-produced with Hitimpulse, is a radiant lifting, mellifluous hooking anthem. It seems this new evolution of Blonde’s sound might not be “just for one night” as it marks a fresh direction for the pair. The single is available from iTunes, here.

It’s been an eternity (or so it feels) since we last heard anything new from Shura, and I really can’t put into words how much I’ve been missing the UK singer songwriter and producer during this silence. The last time we shared anything Shura related, it was her brilliantly warped remix of IHM favorite Pixx’s eccentric charmer Baboo. This week, we finally get a little taste of Shura’s synthpop and electro magic once again as she offers up a remix of Astrid S’ Breathe. The Norwegian songbird’s infectious gem gets a more than groovy re-work by Shura. Slick swerving synths and funky knocking cowbells set me in the mood for a solo dance party this early morning in my office. Excuse me as I go look for a mirror ball to hang up and some proper disco shoes to twirl about in. I need to get this Shura dancing itch scratched before any co-workers arrive! Shura’s remix of Astrid S’ Breathe can also be streamed on Spotify, here.

Astrid S’ Hurts So Good appealed to me even before I first heard the song a few short months ago. How can you go wrong with a twisted name like that? Soon enough, the chanteuse enslaved me with her ethereal aching electropop. Fellow Norwegian producer Sonny Alven has given Hurts So Good a lighter bounce in a summer airy, fluffy flushed makeover. The deep melodic remix shines brilliantly, much like a Jack Ü meets Gryffin anthem hiding heart rending, bittersweet undercurrents. Sonny Alven’s blissful remix can also be streamed on Spotify.

Norwegian producer Matoma’s Running Out, featuring Astrid S, is one hot smash. It’s no wonder Running Out has been receiving an endless amount of remix treatments from producers all around. It’s also the subject of Austin based rising producer CLOUDCHORD’s latest ebullient remix. CLOUDCHORD adds vibrant guitar and sprightly keys to his rendition of Running Out, and it takes off like an uplifting future deep, electro buoyant Gryffin track. The gleaming remix is a free download, here.

Hurts so good is a very fine way of defining a lot of music I like. The darker, the moodier, the more heart rending it is, the more “good” music can feel. It’s an odd fact of life that applies to art in all its many forms. Astrid S’ Hurts So Good is a glorious representation of that truth. The Norwegian songbird’s aching electropop is deeply stirring and heavily dejected on the brooding gem. Astrid S caught many music fans’ ears when she collaborated with producer Matoma on Running Out, but she’s also been making a grand statement with her solo work building up to a debut self titled EP, out May 20th. Hurts So Good is sure to reel in Halsey and Tove Lo fans alike, its dark melodic allure absolutely irresistible.

If the name Astrid S is familiar to you mainly because of your undying love for Matoma’s recent sparkling original, Running Out, prepare yourself, you’re about to fall madly in love with the singer songwriter. The Norwegian songbird recently uploaded her gorgeous electropop song Paper Thin onto Soundcloud and Spotify, providing us with the perfect opportunity to let its crystalline, fragile beauty liquefy our hearts. Astrid S’s voice is extraordinarily enchanting, and her song’s twinkling elegance is purely spellbinding. Is it any wonder Astrid S is one of the most popular pop stars back at home in Norway?

Running Out is more than likely my favorite Matoma original, its chill tropical luster and much bewitching vocals by electropop artist Astrid S a magically sparkling sea of glacial beauty. The Norwegian producer’s new music video for Running Out affords us a joyful revisit of the song, plus its visual representation of the song’s contrasting sun kissed warmth and snowy iciness is a delightful addition to the already staggering effect of the song. Running Out comes from matoma’s debut abum HAKUNA MATOMA!, available now at iTunes.
