Canadian purveyors of electro-pop Austra will release their latest full-length, Future Politics, on January 20th on Domino. It’s been nearly three years since Katie Stelmanis and company released the stellar Olympia.
According to Stelmanis, the new album is a reaction to the current political climate, an aesthetic statement that urges “a commitment to replace the approaching dystopia.” She continues, in a press release, “It’s not about ‘being political,’ it’s about reaching beyond boundaries, in every single field.”
Here’s the first single from the forthcoming record, “Utopia,” as well as tour dates for the spring. Enjoy.
