Review: "Low Low" - Astian

Low Low by Astian

Astian's latest single, "Low Low" is a vibrant pop tune about finding confidence and independence despite living with heartbreak and mistreatment. Astian writes about overthinking and wasting time on compromises with someone who seems to be only causing him more stress. "Low Low" tells the story of his freedom as he lets this person go, moving on with the things that make him happy. It's a saga I think many of us have experienced as we hang onto toxic relationships for one reason or another. It's hard to leave and let the anxiety go, but once we do, we're always better off in the long run.

The song not only has a great message, but it's also infectiously catchy. The bright pop beat and melody hit me right in my 90s kid heart, reminiscent of artists like the Backstreet Boys. The track feels nostalgic, like something you would've played at a sleepover with your friends. I'm absolutely loving the way "Low Low" could be played at any party in 2002 and fit right in alongside Justin Timberlake in the line-up. But that doesn't take away from what it is today. We're seeing a resurgence of Y2K culture in media, and this track is a perfect example of that. With elements from past and present eras, "Low Low" can be appreciated by any generation.

Swedish artist Astian was first discovered by winning a competition for Swedish radio station, P3. He won a record deal but declined it in favor of releasing his music independently. Since his debut, he has amassed nearly three million streams. Most of Astian's work is in his native language, with "Low Low" being his first English track in two years since the release of his single, "2slow". Through his art, Astian aims to show others that their vulnerabilities can be their strengths. With honest and emotional messages, this is an artist who stands out in a sea fake of fake influencers and clickbait and I can't wait to see what he does next. If you haven't heard it yet, give "Low Low" a listen! It's out on all streaming services now.
