Norwegian pop star Astrid S has great potential but hasn’t found her breakout hit yet. I’m not sure Such a Boy is that song, but it is my favourite track from her so far. I love the opening lyric, “Say you need more space, what are you an astronaut?” The track manages to be both sassy and sincere, which is rarely achieved. It’s included on her second EP, Party’s Over, which was released last Friday, and she also performed a stripped back version on Norwegian TV show Nyhetsmorgon.
