A few years ago, the operatic Toronto art-punk veteran Katie Stelmanis put together the witchy synthpop band Austra, and their excellent debut album Feel It Break was one of the great surprises of 2011. Next month, they’ll follow it up with the sophomore effort Olymbia, and they’ve already shared the floridly gorgeous first single “Home.” Now they’ve linked with the directorial duo that go to make a video for the song. The clip consists of a single steady shot of a depressed-looking Stelmanis, sitting numbly while other Austra members flit around her. It’s oddly transfixing, and you can watch it below.
Olympia is out 6/18 on Domino.
