Hear "Home" from Austra's Forthcoming 'Olympia' + Tour Dates

With 2010 debut Feel It Break, Austra found an audience who were waiting for exactly what they were selling: sophisticated dark wave with a powerful female vocals. The Toronto sextet's second LP, Olympia, has over three months before its release date, but you can hear the lead single, "Home", today. Frontwoman Katie Stelmanis states that Olympia was more of a collaborative effort than their debut. You can hear more pop, little less darkness, more organics yet retaining a trance-like danceability, with more of a confessional tone on "Home".

Olympia available on CD, 2xLP, and digitally on June 18 (US) / June 18 (Canada on Paper Bag Records) / June 17 (Rest of the world) on Domino.

Olympia Track Listing:
1. What We Done?
2. Forgive Me
3. Painful Like
4. Sleep
5. Home
6. Fire
7. I Don't Care (I'm a Man)
8. We Become 
9. Reconcile
10. Annie (Oh muse, you)
11. You Changed My Life
12. Hurt Me Now
