Asta - Shine EP
By Viv Mellish & Luke Byatt
There's no doubt that Asta is a true performer, and her music is just perfect! From humble beginnings winning Triple J's Unearthed High in 2012, to racking in two tracks in the Hottest 100, Asta is definitely packing the musical heat. Asta is no stranger to selling out headline tours, and festivals, making her mark at Falls, and Splendour.
Now the Tasmanian is back with her Shine EP, and a national tour; which we covered a stop of, you can read that here! Asta's original brooding acoustic pop has been flipped on its head, resulting in an EP that teems with life, confidence and a tinge of magic. Arguably one of the country’s most powerful emerging live voices, an Asta show is an infectious euphoric experience.
“Having been discovered in high school by triple j, I had to do some living before I had enough to say for a debut EP. I think I've scrubbed enough dishes, eaten enough tofu and broken a few hearts now to deserve a party. " - Asta
