Twist And Shout

For ASTN, optimism and stormier emotions exist in perfect balance. The Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter, and producer makes genre-blurring songs built around light, textured R&B production, and relatable, repeatable hooks. And his new five-track EP, You're Almost There, pushes his introspective songwriting even further-tracing the contours of the growth and confidence that comes after pushing through hard times. ASTN (born Austin Sanders) has always carried music with him wherever he went, especially as his family moved across the South when he was a kid. By his sophomore year of college, he had identified his own unique palette of warm R&B and poppier trap sounds-inspired by the hip-hop his older brother played for him in the car when he was a kid-and started singing and writing. His first original offering was December 2017's Tell Your Friends, followed by the introspective IT'S NOT THAT SERIOUS last June. ASTN has continued to demonstrate his growth as a boundary-pushing producer with his "what if this song was rnb?" remixes on social media, and his November 2021 take on Billie Eilish's "Happier Than Ever" especially resonated-exploding to 56.6 million views in two months. With his Warner Records debut, You're Almost There, ASTN is ready to introduce his truest self to his largest audience yet. "I just want that message to ring true," he says. "You are almost there, whether 'there' is a million miles down the road or a couple feet ahead of you. I'm living proof of that. TRACKLISTING: 1. Gradually 2. Real 3. You're Almost There 4. Easy 5. Said It All.
