Austra Announce ‘Habitat’ EP, Out 6/17

Austra Announce 'Habitat' EP, Out 6/17 on Paper Bag/Domino records. Austra play next live on May 24th at the Sasquatch Festival at the Gorge in Oregon


Austra is set to release a brand new four-track Habitat EP on June 17th on Domino (Rest of the world) / Paper Bag Records (Canada).  Listen to the title track ‘Habitat’ above.

“Habitat is an old song that we’ve waited almost three years to release, says the band’s Katie Stelmanis. “It didn’t seem to fit with the sounds of Feel it Break or Olympia, so we decided to finally put it out as a single along with 3 new instrumental tracks. There’s a lot of live versions of the song online but people have always pressed us to make a proper recording, so we are especially excited to announce these limited-edition physical copies of the EP. It’s a euro-style computer music experiment produced with love from me, Maya, and Dorian.”

The band recently completed US west coast dates with Chvrches after having performed at Coachella. In addition to a series of upcoming North American festivals such as Sasquatch in George, WA and Field Trip in Toronto, the band have UK and European shows over the summer.

Austra’s last studio album Olympia was written and recorded in collaboration with members of Austra’s touring band. The album takes influences from musical sources including South American wind ensembles, eastern folk music, 80s industrial and Chicago house.
