Weave: Astrid’s tea party

By Yasmin Sholgami

Shaped from the wreckage of a thousand destructive weekenders, born not out of the need to ‘change the world,’ but something far more important – to change the record. Brighton based electro-dance rock band Astrid’s Tea Party have returned to the music scene after spending several years behind the scenes perfecting their craft and becoming the band they are today.  Channelling songs of love, paranoia, betrayal, substance abuse, and hate- all making for the perfect soundtrack to those oh, so troubled times.


‘What’s in it for me’ is the debut single that is a splendid glam rock influenced track. Featuring bouncy synthesisers, a heavy guitar, soaring drumbeat and the kind of driving, rapid bassline that can only come out of an 80s synth pop-inspired single. Bewitching, front woman Astrid is a mix of Roisin Murphy on overdrive with an underlying Charli XCX pop-punk attitude. With a manifesto to turn dreams into nightmares, and nightmares into dreams, making your reality the first casualty in the war against normality.


‘What’s in it for me’  will be available for sale and download Monday 1st December 2014.
