Astre releases dreamy EP on Moving Castle’s imprint titled ‘For So Long’
20-year-old French producer Astre has released an indie downtempo influenced EP titled For So Long via Moving Castle. The EP features vocal contributions from Amela on the sweeping “Romance,” as well as Kevin Blu’s tranquil voice on “Shades.” Each song is captivating in its own right, featuring different styles, while at the same time staying true to the EP’s aesthetic as a whole.
“The For So Long EP been through many forms, but my goal was always to do something poetic and youthful with it. The point was to create a complete story – music, artworks, films… – sharing a juvenile mind about love, life, and what happens to that mind when it enters the wild world. I wanted to share another point of view than my past EP Dreams of Gold, which was more thought and sad. I wanted to showcase the positive as well, and where it leads. Explain the origin of the sadness isn’t sadness itself. Since I made these songs last year, it’s been very hard to grow and keep them secret, as they do not necessarily reflects who I am today. Even if I keep questioning myself, I am so excited today to release this EP as I feel way more free to explore further then.”
With powerful intentions relayed behind For So Long, the EP stands out by conveying moving sentiments for listeners. Astre has shown that with his latest releases, the experimental EP speaks for itself in its artistry.
