ASTR: A Girl/Guy Band From NYC (Exclusive Interview)
When’s the first time you heard of ASTR? I came across ASTR last year during the CMJ Marathon. I discovered their cover song for Drake’s “Hold On” and immediately fell in love with their sound and style. Like many recent fans of music, I consider myself a hip-hop-head-turned-electronic-enthusiast. This shift in music taste is so cliche (I still love my hip hop) but it’s hard to ignore when the music is so good. Before they really ramp up their touring efforts this summer, URB Magazine had a chance to speak to the two on the past, present and what holds in their near future.
