Austra – ‘Lose It’

23 May

Austra is the Toronto trio of vocalist/pianist/etc Katie Stelmanis, drummer Maya Postepski, and bassist Dorian Wolf. The story has it that Stelmanis joined the Canadian Children’s Opera at 10, sang for the Canadian Opera Company, and pursued a career in opera (while learning viola and piano) until she attended a punk show and joined a band. The roots of Stelmanis’ classical training are still there – her voice is hauntingly good. Directed by M Blash,  ‘Lose It’  is the new single from Austra’s debut album Feel It Break.
