Who knew that slick, sexy R&B laden synth tracks could result from a yoga class?  When my friends leave yoga class all they want to do is eat granola and talk about how long they have to hold ridiculously named poses like cow face or half lord of the fishes (yes, those are real).  Anyway, Zoe and Adam met during a yoga class and from what their Facebook page says, discovered a mutual love of cinema noire, Miami Vice and urban dreamscapes.  These mutual appreciations resulted in the forming of ASTR, a dark, gritty pop duo with a knack for creating seductive, sweat-inducing tracks.  Their first single, “Operate,” showcases Zoe’s steely vocals and Adam’s sharp, apocalyptic electronics and makes me feel like I’m not old enough to be listening to this kind of music.  Enjoy.
