The Astrals have come a long way since we first laid ears on them in 2018. The brainchild of Sydney artist Claire Simpson, the musical project is an outlet of dreamy goodness. Simpson crafts songs that balance between scuzzy bedroom charm and lush, sweeping pop arrangements.
With the release of her new single Disappearing, she continues to establish her penchant for crafting these direct and immersive gems of sound. If you’re not already across this artist, we strongly recommend you change that.
On her new single Disappearing, Sydney-based artist Claire Simpson (aka The Astrals) delivers an ocean of immersive dream-pop brilliance.
All throughout the new single, The Astrals glide through a hypnotic blend of dream-pop, shoegaze, and indie-rock, delivering something uniquely their own. With droning guitars and ghostly vocals, Disappearing is the kind of tune that flutters above your head before landing deeply in your bones.
Across its five-minute run-time, the track builds into a catharsis of noise. The fuzzy layers of instrumentation meld into one another, developing a force of music that’s sure to knock you back a step. By the time the track reaches its conclusion, however, you’ll have been roped in completely by The Astrals’ all-consuming brand of music.
This is the latest in a string of consistently great releases from this Sydney artist, and we can’t wait to hear what she delivers next.
In the meantime, do yourself a favour and listen to the new single above.
