    Icon15 AUSTRA

    gothperatic darkwave indietronica heaven.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Austra_%28band%29


    Feel It Break was my favourite album of 2011.

    I caught them twice last week - at Laneway Festival, and a sideshow - they are an absolutely spectacular live act.










    and even the PS22 kids have covered a bside -



    While they were in Aus, they performed on Triple J's Like A Version, covering royksopp+robyn's None of Dem

    http://www.abc.net.au/triplej/media/s3433130.htm


    New album is in the works while they continue to tour - but it won't be released until at least 2013.

    Current touring lineup includes Sari and Romy Lightman from https://www.facebook.com/tasseomancy (formerly 'Ghost Bees')

    and drummer Maya Posteski is also one-half of Trust https://www.facebook.com/dressedforspace , along with Robert Alfons


    Lead singer Katie Stelmanis was formerly in Galaxy, along with Maya & Emma McKenna - http://www.myspace.com/intothegalaxy
    released a solo LP Join Us in 2007


    and performs vox on the lead single for Death In Vegas' last LP -

    This thread should have been started a long time ago!! Feel It Break was probably my favorite album of 2011. ETA: "Darken Her Horse" is one of my favorites right now. I'm always playing at least one track from this album for weeks on end, I never get tired of it.

    Yes!

    I was surprised as to there not being a thread dedicated to them already!

    The Paper Bag sessions are quite great:

    What does everyone think of Trust and Katie Stelmanis solo? I hated the Trust album (except for "Candy Walls") and Katie's album is not memorable, although "Believe Me" is good.

    I've just got into them yesterday but I'm really loving what I'm hearing. Reminds of a lot of Kate Bush in some places.

    Feel It Break was definitely my favorite album of 2011. And basically 2012 since I still find myself returning to it regularly. Really fantastic work at play here.
