Astha makes music that’s melodic, direct, and emotional, with lyrics that attempt to explore the human psyche: spirit, mind, and emotions. Her sound references pop, folk, R&B, and draws inspiration from other artists like Jhene Aiko, Ben Harper, Daniel Caesar, and Alina Baraz to name a few. This latest song from her is the title track of her new EP, to be released later this year.
The title track, Muse is the central source of inspiration that ties the 7 song EP together. The first spark of creative thought that sent me down a spiral of writing a whole collection of songs. Ever since I was a little girl, I dreamt of meeting my person. I sort of always had a traditional and idealistic view of what love should be; faithful, honest, and unconditional. “And you are my muse, and I choose, to need you, by my side, to love you, all my life”. I am making a vow here, to stick through thick and thin, to love this person forever.
