11 Songs, 45 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Shifting between speaker-rattling blasts of lush, goth-tinged techno and the propulsive throb of synth-pop at its darkest, Austra fills their third album with sharply politicized club bangers, along with ghostly ballads about the power of resistance in a tumultuous era. Whether the band is pounding out a menacing floor-filler like “Utopia” or reveling in keyboard-driven eeriness on “Freepower,” frontwoman Katie Stelmanis often swaps her trademark vocal fireworks for a hypnotic murmur, but her soaring, intense choruses will still take your breath away.

They are back

After taking a step back with their last album, they have returned with a winner. Both "Utopia" and "Future Politics" are stunners.

Intense and Haunting.

The whole album is better than my words will ever be able to describe. However, 'Beyond a Mortal' is one of the greatest songs ever made.
