Austra air new track ‘Change The Paradigm’

It’s a B-side to ‘Future Politics’.

Austra released their latest album ‘Future Politics’ all the way back in January but before the year’s out they’ve got one more track to share. 

‘Change the Paradigm’ is a B-side to the Canadian synth-pop group’s latest record and it takes some of the silky electronic elements from the LP and adds a layer of industrial beats and shuddering, glitchy aspects into the mix. Like the rest of the album, it demands attention. 

Katie Stelmanis said of the track: “I wish ‘Change the Paradigm’ had made it onto the record because it directly embodies what I wanted to express on Future Politics - that the most powerful tool we possess for creating a better world is our own imagination. Future Politics was written in a much different climate than what we have today. It’s been difficult to stay positive, but for me the possibility of what lies ahead is not only a weapon of potential, but a source of comfort and faith. We have to believe in the future and our own power to invent it now more than ever!”
