New Music: Austra – “Future Politics”
Katie Stelmanis’s chilly synth-pop project Austra is back with a new single, “Future Politics.” Its video depicts the inhabitants of a sterile, urban-industrial environment, some of whom appear to be falling victim to an invisible plague. Ultimately, Austra and a few others seek domestic refuge in an empty parking lot.
“Future Politics” is the title track of Austra’s upcoming third album, out January 20, 2017—Inauguration Day in the U.S.—from Domino. It’s the follow-up to 2013’s Olympia. Watch “Future Politics” below, and check Domino for Austra’s upcoming tour dates in North America and Europe.
