Austra

Toronto-based Canadian trio (which broadcasts their line up, even doubling it) led by the charismatic Katie Stelmanis, who has a striking dramatic voice.

Classical and operatic, Katie is ready to take on and take on any “New Kate Bush” type adhesive. Prior to this project, Stelmanis produced an arty and synthetic, tense pop. With Austra maintains his theatrical instinct and his desire for the synthetic, but making music more warm and comfortable.

It can be labeled as electro gothic drinking from the British new wave of the early 80’s (faction Japan, Soft Cell). As much as there is a lot of Giorgio Moroder in his DNA, we do not talk about dance music, since … His riffs do not beat or ripple, but flow and envelop. While they sound, Stelmanis does not sing above the music, he prefers that his voice is expressed mixed with the instrumental plot.

They are his songs that appeal to the dark “clubber” that we have inside, the fan of Depeche Mode and the groove to Studio 54. Anyone who doubts if they have been able to bring all this to the present only has to listen to their first album, “Feel It Break “, published in 2011 on the Domino label. “Olympia”, its successor, was released in the summer of 2013, produced by Mike Haliechuk (member of Fucked Up) and Damian Taylor (this, the vocal parts), more epic and doubling the bet to reach the big pop crossover. On January 20, his third album, “Future Politics”, was released.
