At only 16 years old singer/songwriter Astrid S began her career as a contestant on Norway’s version of American Idol. Her beautifully haunting covers of Dolly Parton’s “Jolene”, Britney Spears’ “Toxic” and her original song “Shattered” ultimately earned her a 5th place finish on the show. As is often the case with music contest shows, the runner up turned out to be a true star whose dreams came true professionally. Two years later, Astrid S has reemerged with her new single “2 AM”, which has the pop catchiness of Elle Goulding with a touch of Rihanna’s swagger. Astrid doesn’t just do danceable pop. She showcases her range with an even more stripped down acoustic cover of Kanye West, Rihanna and Paul McCartney’s “FourFiveSeconds.” Based on these songs and the fact that she’s still very young, I’m really excited to see what Astrid S will do next. Check out her music below and let me know what you think!
