Astræa (Ancient Greek: Ἀστραῖα; "star-maiden" or "starry night")

Drawing on the atmospheric and electronic sounds of dark alternative pop,

singer-songwriter/producer Astræa has released her newest single ‘You’re

Not Alone’. The self-produced cover of the 90’s dance classic features her

ethereal and emotive vocals amid a backdrop of lush, cinematic production.

’You’re Not Alone’ is currently being featured in the latest Lloyds Bank ad,

on heavy rotation throughout the UK and Ireland for the next year.

 

‘You’re Not Alone’ has achieved over 3 million streams across platforms, reaching #18 in the

Spotify UK Viral Charts, and has garnered editorial playlist support from Spotify. The track

has also been trending in iTunes, reaching #23 in the UK iTunes Main

Charts and #2 in the UK Singer-Songwriter Charts, as well as trending in

iTunes Charts in Ireland, Netherlands, New Zealand, among many others.

 

Astræa is the newest project from artist Jennifer Ann, reflecting the darker,

cinematic side of her artistry. Jennifer’s self-produced cover of ‘Mad World’

was featured in a Lloyds Bank advert and independently sold over 25,000

copies and achieved over 2.5 million streams. She has a track record of

success in the sync world, producing for both herself and other artists,

including the ad version of ‘Praise You’ by Hannah Grace, featured in

2017’s Lloyds Bank advert.

 

Citing influence from classic artists such as Kate Bush and Tori Amos, and

contemporary artists like Lorde and Birdy, Astræa intertwines her

background as a classical pianist with electronic soundscapes in her

upcoming EP. The EP will feature production by herself, Roy Kerr of MyRiot

(London Grammar, Birdy, Halsey) and Aidan O’Brien (Ider, Fours).
