ASTR is back with two brand new songs, and this time, the duo has gone solo. Zoe Silverman, the artist behind a revamped ASTR, makes her evolution into a solo artist with "Ritual" and “In Your Eyes,” new grungey takes on electro-pop singles. ASTR's newest tracks offer a commentary on individuality and thinking for oneself, and mark a new era for the New York-based artist.

“We acquire programs for how we operate within the world through our environments and circumstances," the artist said. "These programs expire with our coming of age and we must rewrite the system. 'Ritual' is about the burning desire to go beyond the surface and explore what we have accepted as true within a domesticized culture. There is a pool of potential energy on the other side when we spark our exploration." About "In Your Eyes," she remarks,  “When does too much of a good thing become bad? 'In Your Eyes' is the bridge from the last era of ASTR, which continues to explore the fear of losing self-control.”

When talking about the decision to go solo, Silverman explains, “ASTR will take many forms. Our only constant is change and the moment we become fixed in nature our evolution stops. Nature is fluid and so is ASTR.” These two new tracks prove just that. Listen to them below.
