Artist Review: Astara – “Take Me Higher” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

We’ve had amazing female solo talent grace our platform over many years. But it’s rare that we run into an artist that is truly versatile, with music that is surreal from the very first listen. Astara is one of those rare occasions with her newest single, “Take Me Higher”.

Truly a visceral experience from start to finish, Astara‘s vocal approach in this song is unwaveringly enchanting, and a rollercoaster of emotions throughout the track’s duration. With catchy vocal melodies that you can tell were carefully structured to deliver a solid impact on each listener, Astara really showcases her versatility and multifaceted nature that really gives you an everlasting impression.

“Take Me Higher” is a soundtrack worthy song that has reverb-driven structures that tell a very compelling story as the song plays out. The production value is more than impressive, and the instrumentally structured elements really help bring out the best of Astara and truly develops her signature sound that is deep, emotional, with endless likability factors throughout. It’s the perfect track to get to know her music from the first listen, as well as a brilliant addition to her catalogue that her fans will absolutely appreciate.

This song is also a great balance between today’s mainstream sensibility and yesterday’s more alternative and pop influenced sound that really brought the genre to the forefront in the first place; and can be appreciated by all music listeners from several eras. Astara is a gem, and “Take Me Higher” demonstrates her authenticity and true talent that a lot of artists tend to lack in today’s era of convoluted genres and overproduced tendencies. Which is another factor that makes Astara truly stand out – she’s a natural in her craft that doesn’t need all the post production antics to deliver real music. Her style can fit among influential artists such as Sia and Mazzy Star, but with a more modern spin and original approach. It’s a truly refreshing sound that almost anyone can identify with.

If you haven’t heard Astara yet, then “Take Me Higher” is the perfect track to get to know her. We can’t recommend her highly enough.
