Norwegian poptress Astrid S captures the emotional tug-of-war of falling for someone who isn’t single in her new track “Closer.” Unlike her previous works, the track has a minimalistic production that drifts between simple guitar plucks and beats that linger in the acoustic melodic precipice. Her vocals are the cathartic force of the track where there is an undeniable sense of longing. Stream below:

Co-written by Astrid, Oscar Gorres, Ludvig Söderberg and James Allen, “Closer” is the follow up of her latest single “Emotion.” The gal has a show tonight in London, so don’t miss her if you’re there:

12/5 – The O2 Arena (London, UK)
