Fronted by Tāmaki Makaurau songwriting talent Crystal Choi, Phoebe Rings bounce back onto our airwaves with '아​스​라​이 (Aseurai)', their first new single since 2021's self-titled debut EP.

The accompanying video for was directed by Nahyeon Lee and made with support from NZ On Air's new Pan-Asian funding initiative, depicting a gloriously garbed Choi singing amidst towering mushroom sculptures made by Hanna Shim.
