One could be excused for mistaking this band’s name for a possible catch phrase for the second half of this absurd year we’re currently living in, but aliensdontringdoorbells has little to do with the wreckage of alien craft at Roswell, or the “big reveal” that beings from another world walk among us. Instead, aliensdontringdoorbells are actually a musical crew of three, aboard a ship that brings with it their new single, entitled “Story”.
It’s an absolute joy to catch an artist on their way up towards stardom. Astraea is one such artist – having already proven her worth as someone who can soundtrack truly heartstring-pulling moments (her music has been played during key moments in Love Island, for example), and collaborating with huge names in the industry such as Ward Thomas and Lewis Capaldi.
Opener ‘Blue Sky Days’ features a marching band drum beat combined with rich strings and purposeful piano from Sage, on a track which seems to have an overall message of defiance. Her vulnerability is on show for all to see on ‘Bravery’s On Fire’ which documents her personal journey whilst she battled with Uterine cancer. The lyrics are relatable to people who have gone through similar hardships and may be a real comfort for some people.
