The single was recorded and produced by Dolf Willemse and Ewald Jansen van Rensburg at Popkult Studios in Potchefstroom in January 2019. A driven, emotional and uplifting offering from ASTON, the song was written in mid-2018 with nature and more particularly, the ocean as inspiration.
“This song is about the inevitable tides occurring in a relationship. This song is my pledge to always hold on, no matter what, because I know that love will win.”
Portraying a message most people would be able to relate to, STORMY WATERS features a dominant use of falsetto, stylistically something brand new for ASTON.
“Stormy Waters is currently my favourite song to perform because it creates a special connection to the audience every time I do. I think that energy transferred into the recording nicely and I am excited to release it into the world.”
