Astrid S – “Closer”
“In the beginning, you were a stranger, but my outlines were drawn to the danger. And once I had a taste of your flavor, mmm, closer. So I’m keeping my eyes off you when she put her hands on you. But later that night, we do it again.” – lyrics
Vevo DSCVR is an annual series which highlights artists who are shaping the future of music. One of these artists is Astrid S, easily considered a bona fide national treasure in her home country with an ever-broadening fanbase.
Astrid started her musical journey at the age of sixteen via Norwegian Idol. Shortly afterward, she earned her first indigenous Top-10 hit with “Shattered”. That same year, she received a deal with Sony ATV Music Publishing as a songwriter.

“Did you forget that I’ve got a thing called emotion? You live and you let ’til you start to bleed. How would I know? ‘Cause you left my wound wide open. Just for how long will you let it bleed?” – lyrics
In five short years, Astrid’s music has amassed close to one billion streams via Spotify alone. Not too long ago, she released a music video for her “Emotion” single, and so far, the video has amassed over 850K views on YouTube.
