Growing up, ASTRINA spent most of her time alone sitting at a grand piano writing instrumental music. But after realizing her love of performing at USC's Thornton School of Music, she transformed into producer/singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist who has fashioned a deeply profound breed of indie pop.
Her music is inspired by acts like Muse, The xx and Radiohead, as well as her extensive background in classical music and film scoring. Her gentle vocal and catchy melodies draw you into her intricate and ethereal arrangements, where she builds the perfect sonic backdrop to the narratives she explores about love, mental health, and philosophy.
"I'm really more of an artist than a musician [...] To create is to channel something bigger than you - something that is too powerful to be contained by your body. Art demands to be expressed in any way possible. The artist simply steps out of the way and allows creation to express itself in a language that speaks to humanity." - ASTRINA
