Austra have shared a video for the track “Hurt Me Now”, the third video to be taken from their second album, Olympia out now on Domino Records (Paper Bag Records in Canada).
Katie Stelmanis from Austra said of the “Hurt Me Now” video directed by M Blash:
“Working with M Blash is a rare experience. I like to give him a song and let him do whatever he wants cause when his mindflow is undisturbed the results are psychedelic and matchless.”Austra and M Blash previously collaborated on the “Lose It” video from the Toronto-based group’s 2011 debut album Feel It Break.
In addition to a series of Australian dates next month, the band will be playing at Coachella 2014. All dates are below and more will be announced soon.
Olympia is an album of transformation. After three years of international touring with the likes of the XX, Grimes and the Gossip, when it came time to record Olympia, Austra had evolved into a complex collaborative effort between its members. Austra is Katie Stelmanis, Maya Postepski and Dorian Thornton, and they are joined on tour by Ryan Wosniak.
