Austra - Future Politics

Austra is an electronic music project from Toronto, Ontario, named after the Latvian goddess of light and featuring singer/keyboardist Katie Stelmanis (middle name Austra), drummer Maya Postepski, bassist Dorian Wolf and keyboardist Ryan Wonsiak. Stelmanis is a classically trained vocalist and pianist who joined the Canadian Children’s Opera at age ten and intended to pursue a career in classical music before falling in love with punk, industrial, and electronic music.

Future Politics is the second single from their new album Future Politics, out January 20, 2017. The video is directed by Allie Avital and the direction of photography is by Martim Vian.

In their own words:

Future Politics is the breaking down of paradigms. In this video, we wanted to explore what a world might look like if our values were transformed: instead of glorifying labour, maybe we could learn to glorify the act of doing absolutely nothing.
