A feat of honesty and storytelling, the latest release from producer and musician Astraea comes in the form of a haunting piano ballad titled ‘My Own Worst Enemy’.

 

Dedicated to the inner critic which lives inside all of us and tells us we’re aren’t good enough, Astraea’s song is both personal and universal in its themes, and delivered in an intimate setting with a piano accompaniment and sparse synths throughout to create ghostly echoes and whispered backing vocals.

 

It’s a beautifully crafted song which shows off Astraea’s more vulnerable side, and latest in a string of releases leading up to her EP, titled Tonight I Run, which is out in September.
