Toronto-based singer/songwriter Katie Stelmanis’ band Austra released their sophomore album Olympia on June 18th, 2013 through Domino Records. It’s been three years since Austra’s initial electronic debut which proved to be at that time as one of the most broodingly beautiful recordings of the year.


Now taking things to another level, Austra doesn’t disappoint with their new album by blending in finer arrangements of multiple octaves of shaky operatic vocals against twinkling synths of poppy dance music. Enjoy.
