Austra announces a show at The Button Factory on March 25, 2017 ahead of their third LP’s release.
‘Future Politics’ is their new single from their upcoming album of the same name which is due for release on January 20 via Domino. Austra’s Katie Stelmanis and the director of the video commented, “Future Politics is the breaking down of paradigms. In this video, we wanted to explore what a world might look like if our values were transformed: instead of glorifying labour, maybe we could learn to glorify the act of doing absolutely nothing.”
Stemanis commented on their newest record as it’s their most ambitious album yet, “a commitment to replace the approaching dystopia.”
The Canadian band’s LP is a collection of disciplined, urgent anthems for headphones and dancefloors. It has great beats along with gorgeous melodies and showcases the vuneravlitiy of Stelmanis’ voice.
Future Politics is available to pre-order now and there is a limited edition deluxe coloured vinyl with exclusive signed art print, CD, and download. Pre-order here on iTunes and Domino Mart.
