New Song: Austra – ‘Home’

Posted: 11/03/2013 in Uncategorized


I certainly got – actually, still get – a lot of milage from Austra‘s debut album Feel It Break, and have made it my business to catch them every time they’ve been to Ireland. From their sweatbox debut in Crawdaddy in July ’11, to their awesome Main Stage party at Forbidden Fruit last summer, to one of the best festival sets I’ve ever had the pleasure to be at when they closed the Body & Soul stage at Electric Picnic  – I am completely sold on the Austra product.

Their new song further cements it. ‘Home’, taken from forthcoming Feel It Break follow-up album Olympia (set for release on June 14th on Domino Records) further cements it. Kate Stelmanis’ voice sounds sublime, and I love the juxtaposition of the frantic beats versus the simplistic piano melody throughout, before it transforms into an all-out disco delight. Bonus points for the jazz-flute solo. LISTEN IMMEDIATELY:
