Astrid Tanton is Better Off following her own intuition on her newest dance floor-ready pop single and stylish video — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
The sophomore single from Canadian indie pop singer-songwriter’s forthcoming debut album From My Eyes, Better Off continues to showcase the fast-rising 18-year-old artist’s unique sound and confident stance.
“Better Off follows me trying to navigate what I think is best for me vs what the people who I care about think is best for me,” Tanton says. “It’s about the battle between what you feel in your heart going against what those who know you and care for you think. In life, people you look to might have different opinions of what you should do in certain situations. Sometimes you’re going to take risks that your loved ones won’t always understand, but you need to feel grounded and secure in your decisions.”
Drawn to music from the age of three, the Ontario multi-instrumentalist – who can hold her own on piano, drums and guitar — has long embraced music as a powerful gateway to express her feelings and worldview in a relatable, connective way. “I really wanted to let people into what has shaped me into the singer/songwriter and young woman I am today,” Tanton says of her upcoming EP. “Each song recalls and explores a pivotal event in my self-growth. From My Eyes means a lot to me. Not just as a singer, but as a woman being vulnerable and open about experiences that weren’t always easy, but made me stronger.”
