Toronto's Austra has caught my eye with it's strangely beautiful vocals, cryptic electronic beats, and provocative music videos. Their debut LP "Feel It Break" was released today and loving what I am hearing so far! The classically trained Katie Stelmanis pens most of the songs herself and though most of the promotional photos are of her solo, she is supported by drummer Maya Postepski and bassist Dorian Wolf. There is quite the buzz surrounding this trio. Check out the track "Lose It" below and the (NSFW) video for "Beat and Pulse".
