ASTHA TAMANG-MASKEY‘s latest album, ‘Muse’ is where airy pop sensibilities, that’s very fitting for the mainstream, is met with underground urban sounds which eventually seeps through the eight-track collection.
Leading the way is an intense yet feather light soundscapes through intro track ‘Mirror’ which makes way for elements of laid-back urban vibes, first appearing in ‘Ride’ where guest rapper, Manny Rite drops an easy-going flow that melts right into the infamous airy arrangements.
Further along the line, a real gutsy soulful and (at times hip-hop-ish) drive makes its presence well and truly known through ‘Muse’ and ‘Jealous’ with the latter track incorporating loops of whistles, making the production uniquely Astha.
Having listened to ‘Muse’ and ‘Jealous’ last year, this album carries on theme of eloquently merging almost stripped pop backdrops and the gritty sound of the underground.
