Austra – Painful Like

CS2219930-02A-BIG

With a revolving bassline of Moroder-quality, dense house beats and classic 80’s synths, Austra follows fellow Canadians Young Galaxy in creating some of the loveliest and most multifaceted synth-pop of the year. “Painful Like” feels more bottom-heavy and thicker in contrast to their somewhat anonymous debut album. Katie Stelmanis operatic vocals sound bigger, better and bolder than ever, hovering over their most upbeat composition to date.

Following the piano-hefty release of the beautiful “Home” (which we missed for some unexplainable reason), “Painful Like” is the second teaser off the Toronto bands upcoming album titled Olympia. Out on June 18th .
