ASTR Announces North American Co-Headline Tour With The Knocks
NYC based "noir n' b" duo ASTR - whose polished, electro-pop sound has bolstered the buzz-worthy band into the spotlight, have announced their first North American co-headline tour with electronic duo The Knocks. The 13-date tour begins in New York in early June, swings through upper North America and wraps-up in Los Angeles in early July.
Before their inaugural tour, the duo, comprised of singer Zoe and multi-instrumentalist Adam, will perform at Canada Music Week in early May, and make an appearance at the Sweetlife Festival in Columbia, MD - just outside of Washington, DC - at the iconic Merriweather Post Pavilion.
Yesterday, ASTR's remix of New Zealand's brother-sister duo Broods' song 'Bridges' debuted on The Fader. Giving the 'original growler a sort of Swedes-doing-tropical bounce,' ASTR again proves their ability to transform a wide-range of pop tunes into funky, danceable beats.
The pair also recently added a drum-driven spin in a remix of 'Sleeping With A Friend,' Neon Trees' latest single from their upcoming album. Their latest studio track, 'Part of Me,' was released via British U.K DJ and international tastemaker Annie Mac just after the duo completed a successful SXSW experience.
The band's debut EP Varsity, and remixes of their hit 'Operate' by The Chainsmokers and The-Drum, are available on Spotify, iTunes and Google Play
