Scouse singer/songwriter Astles brings something different to West Kirby with his dynamic vocal style, captivating melodies, artistic boldness and a delicate rawness to his sounds.
Contorting and amalgamating different sounds as haunting lyrics combine with ghostly synths with delicate little niggles of intimate acoustic guitar lines, Astles sound is truly innovate and immersive. One not to miss at West Kirby Live!
Speaking on his EP Full Of Wonder, Astles said “I really wanted to be ambitious & create something which really showed the evolution of me as a person & as an artist. The concept behind the EP is the loss of your innocence from growing older. Losing faith in the possibilities of youth and embracing the realities of what is in front of you.”
His EP “Live At The Nordic” was recorded at the beautiful surroundings of Liverpool’s Scandinavian Church with Joy Division producer Michael Johnson. Definitely for fans of Jeff Buckley, Bon Iver, Ben Howard and David Gray as his story laden lyrics and immersive acoustic/experimental sound won him Merseyrail Sound Station and LIMF’s one to watch.
