Australian powerhouse singer-songwriter ASTON has unveiled her long-awaited, self-titled debut EP! Featuring the singles Girl Is A Gun, Killer Queen and Firebomb, the release arrives with two brand new tracks and a music video for Middle Fingers.
Bringing her striking and assertive voice to the collection of songs, the empowering release chronicles the singers inner growth and serves as a reminder to live you most badass life. Exploring toxic relationships, lost love, jealousy and attraction, ASTON's debut EP takes inspiration from the fearless women who paved pop music, the Queens of the industry Rihanna, Britney Spears, Fergie and more.
Blazing her own path, ASTON has reached heights not just with her own powerful voice, but her talent as a songwriter. Some of her tracks featured on hit TV programs including Insatiable and Lucifer, her single Next Level featured on Fast and Furious: Hobbs & Shaw, with her single Original also featuring on NBA 2k20.
Check out five female artists who inspire ASTON below!
My first musical crush. Hers was the first album I ever purchased. It opened my eyes up to a side of pop that I’d not seen before and laid a foundation of good music for me. Apart from her hits, I respect her as a leader - who does things her way and never apologises for who she is.
I think Fergie has to be one of my biggest musical inspirations. I’ve always loved her musical style and tone. It’s boisterous and confident. I want to work on paying homage to the OG duchess of pop in future songs. London Bridge 2.0 (that would be sick)
I found Jessi after I started writing for Kpop and my god! She wins the biggest personality award by far. Everything about her both in and out of the studio is so charismatic and in your face. I admire her a lot
She’s having a big moment and it’s well deserved. I love the contrast between funny Doja and sexy Doja! It’s very endearing and you can hear that in her music. It’s very playful and sensual at the same time.
Talk about 'saying it like it is'! Ashnikko makes me wanna take my lyrics into a more open and maybe even a little vulgar direction haha! I don’t think it’s a bad thing at all. We all need to be talking more openly about taboos so we can start deeper conversations anyway. I love that about her music and lyrics. Unafraid for sure.
Aston is out now!
