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.
