ASHRR Release Tantalizingly Twisted, Official Music Video for Addictive New Single, “Sometimes”

Unique synth pop musical collective ASHRR, made up of Singer – Songwriter Steven Davis and Artist / Producers Ethan Allen and Josh Charles, will be releasing the follow up to their dark synth debut “Medicine Man” in the form of “Sometimes” on 8/10/2018. Eschewing categories, “Sometimes” is a sermon of captivating lyrical imagery , inspired and inspiring composition, and a fresh take on post modern creativity.

ASHRR combines analog synths, jet-setter bass lines, neo-funk guitar riffs, and Bryan Ferry-esque vocals into a post rock dystopian dance party.

​The music video is a cerebral and absurdly brilliant ride from the mind of famed director Keith Musil (Twin ShadowFol ChenRainbow Arabia)​. It’s an absolute “you gotta watch it, before I describe it” moment in music video history.
