Toronto-based Austra is set to release a brand new four-track ‘Habitat’ EP on June 16th.
‘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 the band have several UK and European shows over the summer, including a show at Oval Space in London on 10th July.
