ASTRINA: “Not That Girl”

In her 2019 music video for β€œNot That Girl,” Astrina aims to flourish a brand new self.

Backed by nebulous vocals and clones that perform contemporary dance moves, she boldly sings in the chorus, β€œI’m not the girl you used to think you knew, no, not anymore.” It’s a statement that reflects the process of rebuilding oneself from past relationship failures. Astrina is addressing a previous lover who couldn’t fully appreciate her. As a result of this falling-out, she has grown to become stronger than she ever was.

Unsurprisingly, the visuals fully reinforce Astrina’s swaggering self-love. While her silky vocals weave through the hazy atmosphere, a single spotlight is either cast upon a close up of her face or her dancing trio. The former expresses her allure while the latter showcases her talent. The final product emanates with a newfound confidence and independence.

With her new album, Between the Mirror, Astrina enters the pop world with an ethereal sound that we’re sure you’ll love. Listen to β€œNot That Girl” below, Gas Maskers! Tell us what you think of this track on social media at: @gasmaskmagazine.
