Ashe’s moody ingenue voice over these vintage alt-pop beats is a perfect soundtrack to the breaking of the morning on a summer day. Her music has brought bright, twinkling melodies, and whimsical anthems to a variety of playlists since she got discovered.
Since then her fandom has accumulated to more than 100 million Streams of her music library, including eight Hype Machine #1s, and most recently announced as one of VEVO dscvr’s Artists to Watch for 2018 after charting in the top 10 of the Spotify Global Viral 50. Her collaborations with other big names in showbiz such as Louis The Child, Lauv, Big Gigantic, and her touring with the Chainsmokers, cement her trajectory to the top of the charts.
Today we premiere “Choirs” a pensive nostalgic song that Ashe wants you to receive and then embrace your weirdness. “The crazy voices, the good and the ugly. I think, when we embrace them, we have more control over them and thus more control and autonomy over our own lives,” she says.
The artist goes on to note that her inspiration for the song was based just on that notion.
“Writing “Choirs” was my way of dealing with the voices in my head: my own pressures and dreams, and the expectations and rules of others. Acknowledging and accepting those voices’ presence, and knowing which voices to listen to, is a huge part of life.
Ashe’s upcoming debut EP The Rabbit Hole, out June 22nd, where you can expect to hear themes of the human condition, drug addiction, existentialism, and of course love, over her magical beats and vocals.
