Austra - Future Politics

As we charge full-length into the coming apocalypse, we can’t say we weren’t warned.

As we charge full-length into the coming apocalypse, we can’t say we weren’t warned.

Label: Domino
Released: 20th January 2017
Rating: ★★★★

Austra’s third studio album displays “a commitment to replace the approaching dystopia” - something that runs through it’s 11 tracks like a message through a stick of rock.

Smart, thoughtful yet immediate electronic sounds play perfectly off a show-stoppingly perfect vocal as opener ‘We Were Alive’ morphs into the more bloopy, brilliant title track. Lead cut ‘Utopia’ stands out furthest, sounding both futuristic and self-aware of what’s to come.

As we charge full-length into the coming apocalypse, we can’t say we weren’t warned. Christopher Jones
