Astrid S Releases Dramatic New Single ‘Emotion’

Norwegian singer-songwriter Astrid Smeplass aka Astrid S has released her highly anticipated single entitled ‘Emotion’.

The track begins with a strong piano melody that continues throughout the song, combining with heavy drums and high synth beats that builds a great momentum combined with lyrics such as “did you forget that I have this thing called emotion?” 

The song itself is meant to be a commentary on toxic relationships and manipulative partners with Astrid S herself stating that…

‘It’s about that sort of relationship a lot of people go through. It was written at breaking point. Music can be like therapy when it works like that. I had this idea that I wanted to make something modern and hopefully stands the test of time’.

The song is now available with an accompanying currently music video in the works.
