INTERVIEW: We chat to Astrid S while she builds a house of cards – it’s not as easy as it looks!

Astrid S is currently touring with our bae Troye Sivan on his ‘Blue Neighbourhood’ tour. The beauty from Norway is the proud owner of an MTV EMA award and has been dubbed as ‘Norway’s next great pop export’. We sent presenter Luke Franks and photographer Tom Leishman along to meet her while she was in London. Luke had a chat with her while challenging her to build a house of cards, in honour of her new single, ‘Paper Thin.’

Building a house of cards isn’t as easy as it looks, is it? But somehow her failure just makes us love her even more! If you, like us, are now obsessed with Astrid S, check out the lovely lyric video for her catchy new single below.
