Austra “Feel It Break” (2011)

July 20, 2011

Fronted by the classically trained Latvian-Canadian Katie Stelmanis, Austra is one of the best things to happen in music this (already good) year. Stelmanis’ voice is massive yet luring and it’s a perfect vehicle to guide us through these 11 brilliant tracks. Almost each of them is a proper single material. Austra are just incredible at making dark dance marvels. Think of Zola Jesus rocking a nightclub. Lyrics are disturbing, here’s a sample from The Future: I came so hard in your mouth / I saw the future, it was dark. Shoot the Water is an obligatory listen!

hydrameter: 4/5

Key Tracks: Beat and the Pulse, Darken Her Horse, Hate Crime, Lose It, Shoot the Water, The Choke, The Future, The Villain
