Austra is Katie Stelmanis, making music for people who understand the dancefloor as a source of radical ideas and radical joy. Her most recent album ‘Future Politics' (their 3rd on Domino) calls for "a commitment to replace the approaching dystopia," says Stelmanis. "Not just hope in the future, but the idea that everyone is required to help write it, and the boundaries of what it can look like are both fascinating and endless. It's not about ‘being political,' it's about reaching beyond boundaries, in every single field." This is an artist who has always been intent on making music which defies genre classification – and testing boundaries with her inspiring and ever-evolving live show. It's radicalism distilled.
