Electro-goth and dark chic, a shy echo of Giorgio Moroder, a strong resemblance with The Knife, Fever Ray and Zola Jesus, a powerful theatrical instinct like Bat For Lashes, the sexual synthetic soul of Ladytron and The Organ: all of this is Feel it Break, the first work by the Canadian band Austra (newborn of always predictive Domino Records). Former opera singer Katie Stelmanis, drummer Maya Postepski and bassist Dorian Wolf have created a strong, dramatic album which starts from the deep roots of New Wave till the upper heights of classical singing, through the hypnotic mix by Damian Taylor (Bjork, The Prodigy). Must Listen.
Special Mention: Track #4 “Beat and the Pulse”

Paste it to the edge of your bed
Someone will be there
