Austra share new video for “Hulluu,” dates

Austra share new video for "Hulluu" directed by Emily Law, reveal dates with Broken Bells, 'Habitat' EP Out Now Via Domino, Austra play 07/03 in Pontevedra

Toronto-based Austra’s Habitat, a brand new-four-track EP, is out now on Domino.

Watch the Zeesy Powers-directed video for the track Hulluu, featuring choreography and dancing from Emily Law, below. This is the second video to appear from the Habitat EP.

The band recently completed US west coast dates with Chvrches after having performed at Coachella and Sasquatch and have announced US support dates with Broken Bells.

Katie Stelmanis from Austra said the following about the Hulluu video:

I knew that I wanted the video for Hulluu to focus on movement. I’ve known Emily since I was 12 and she is the best dancer/waacker in Toronto so I definitely wanted her to be a part of it. Zeesy is a super-talented artist who I used to live with and collaborate with all the time making soundtracks for her performance art pieces (and who was actually the one to encourage me to start performing my own music in the first place). I thought it would be cool to work together again. We used a green screen and filmed Emily dancing to the track for about 4 hours.

In Zeesy’s words: “The spirit self is unleashed in the nightclub in your mind. The beat hits and time stops, speeds up, slows down. On the dance floor do you compete with others or only yourself? True freedom fills the body with what we have been, are, and could be. Shedding psychic bodies reveals the person always there. Move.”
