New York duo ASTR make really fun music - spectral, of-the-moment pop with an inherently hip-hop swagger. Basically, their music sounds like Lorde blasted out in space. (That's poetic license, nerds.) ASTR have been keeping up a steady stream of new tunes for the better part of a year now, leading up to their six-track Varsity EP, which is out this week on Neon Gold Records. You can stream the EP in the player above if you have an Rdio account, or you can check out highlights "Blue Hawaii" and essential Drake cover "Hold On, We're Going Home" below:
