For their latest video, Austra take a trip to a moonlit park where "people purge and absolve their sins through sexual liberation," according to Toronto's shadowy synthpop-makers themselves. The song is "Forgive Me," a melodically wistful highlight from Olympia powered by a consistent beat and dressed with lush synth flourishes. Claire Edmondson directs, utilizing night vision to capture the decidedly NSFW activities of these woods' passing denizens. Austra's second album arrives November 26 via Domino. Revisit the videos for "Home" and "Painful Like."
