Austra return to their gloomy beginnings with “Habitat”

The Toronto group dump out a pile of grim arpeggios on their latest track, which will anchor a new EP.

Here's the first single off Austra's new EP Habitat is the title track, an older song that takes the Toronto group back to their gloomier beginnings while retaining the polish displayed on their latest album Olympia. "Habitat" orbits around some painful longing, with Katie Stelmanis plunging "I want you / I need you brother" repeatedly into the heart of the song and letting her vague torment linger over the voiceless techno corridors.

Austra's new EP Habitat is out June 17 via Paper Bag Records in Canada; pre-order it here.
