BETWEEN THE MIRROR with ASTRINA


Where are you located now and where are you originally from? I'm currently living in Los Angeles, and I grew up about an hour outside the city in Orange County, California. Who has been your greatest influence? If I had to pick one influence as a musician, it would be the band Muse. As a piano composer growing up, I was really inspired by the classical influences in Matthew Bellamy's writing, particularly in the album Resistance. When I first started producing, I think my sound resembled Muse to some extent, but as the years went by, my own sound began to emerge. What is your latest and greatest? I just released my debut album, Between the Mirror. I've been working on it for years and am really proud of it. The album is all about my journey so far in learning to live with mental illness. I have bipolar disorder and the first few years were really tough. When you're really deep in an episode, you literally think that it will always be that way or has always been that way. You are not alone and you will find stability again. Happiness does exist and you will find it. It took 2-3 years for me to find the right treatment and I've been stable for 2 years now. To my listeners - if you are struggling, it will get better. What are you most looking forward to in 2021? Hopefully, playing live shows again! The thing I've missed most in 2020 is live performance, so I'm really hoping we figure out a way to bring that back next year. How can we stay up to date with you? I'm most active about sharing updates on Instagram (@astrinamusic). My new music is always available on all streaming platforms.  INSTAGRAM
