ÄSTRA SURPRISES AUDIENCES WITH A COLLABORATION WITH SPANISH ROCK ICON
Los Angeles, May 25, 2021 - Los Angeles based alt-rock duo, ÄSTRA just released their single "De la Piel para Adentro", a collaboration with the emblematic Spanish icon Bunbury. The track is their first Spanish release, included on their sophomore and powerful EP “Fire”.
"Collaborating with ÄSTRA is a gift of great value. Musically, getting on the steamroller and being able to sing and write "From the Skin to Inside" is to join a band in effervescence, roaring at the right moment to start the engine of a powerful machine. The song connects us with a city that is losing its essence and a world that seems to slip through our fingers. Rock n'Roll is a celebration of our most basic, furious and inquisitive instincts. There are still bands ready for action, against the current. From USA & Colombia, to the world".
- says the Spanish icon.
Written and produced by Guillermo Morales Vitola and Carlos Calvo in conjunction with Bunbury, the track is a reflection of current times.
"Working with Bunbury is an honor and a dream come true. We couldn't believe when he agreed to sing on the song. He is a legend and a hero"
- Guillermo Morales Vitola.
The music video was directed and produced by renowned Spanish director Sergio Abuja. Shot in Los Angeles, the music video shows us a world focused on a consumer society designing a model of human beings that have to be alike. "The song is an ode to individuality and I proposed to create a visual contrast that expresses just the opposite. Making a visual ode to the generality and homogenization of the human being" - Sergio about the creative process.
Included on the EP, there are two other original songs, with guest vocalist Zack Adams: “Fire”, a classic toe tapping title track with a chorus that goes "We always think we have Desire / Do you really have that fire?" and the contagious “Energizer Hunny", inviting audiences to let loose and have fun.
Fire is the second of four elements. ÄSTRA will be releasing two more EPs this year.
