Texas rapper/producer Johnny Astro is no stranger to Indie Shuffle. We’ve premiered a number of his singles, including my personal favorite, the Adele-sampling “Goodnight America.”
With his newest release, “Sober,” Johnny Astro tackles the familiar motif of sobriety, applying it to his crumbling relationship. He’s clever, and knows how to paint a vivid picture with his rhymes. The production on “Sober” reminds me of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, especially as the outro approaches. I’m feeling the strings, and that demon-like vocal manipulation is on point.
“Sober” is the first release off of Johnny Astro’s upcoming release, #TheSkyIsBroken.
