New Austra Video And Tour Dates

Austra releases new home video and announces tour dates

The first video from Austra’s album, Olympia out June 18 on Domino. Home is a piano driven track with heartfelt lyrics expressing the anxieties of waiting up all night for a lover to return. Austra will also return to the USA for a coast-to-coast tour in August and September.

The accompanying video was filmed as one single take and features Katie Stelmanis and her band preparing for a show. The video was directed by That Go (Noel Paul & Stefan Moore – who have previously made videos for Bat For Lashes and Royksopp amongst others). “The band wanted the video to be intimate and simple, which we thought was perfect for the track. To that end we not only kept the format simple, but we also put the camera behind a 2-way mirror so the band couldn’t see it. Whenever someone is looking at the camera they’re only seeing their own reflection and the environment behind them.”
