New Release: Austra – ‘Olympia’

 

Canadian band Austra today releases their sophomore album, Olympia. The sound can be described as electro-pop but with lots of breadth and depth, as Austra makes music with a hollowing gravity paired with a somehow undeniable bounce.

Watch the video for their first single, “Home,” below. You’ll hear quivering vocals reminiscent of Bjork and a grandeur akin to Florence & the Machine – not a bad combination at all.

NYC, be sure to catch their in-store performance at Other Music tomorrow, June 19 at 8 PM. Get tickets on Austra’s Tumblr.
