It seems like the vast majority of the music I’m head-over-heels in love with at the moment has wormed its way to me from one of two places: Canada or Sweden. In-keeping with this formula is Canadian band Austra. Austra is Katie Stelmanis, along with Maya Postepski and Dorian Wolf.
Single ‘The Beat and the Pulse’ is excellent, but it’s ‘Young and Gay’ that I love the most. Austra remind me of Niki & the Dove in the way they make a misty, dark kind of music that conjures up all kinds of imagery. SO GOOD.
