AUSTRA with THE RANGE, and TELEPHON9 at The Magic Stick



AUSTRA




“People have always been good at imagining the end of the world,” wrote Rebecca Solnit, “which is much easier to picture than the strange sidelong paths of change in a world without end.”

The future won’t look like the past: dystopian dread takes this for granted, but utopian imagination is just as valid. Future Politics, Austra’s third, and most ambitious album to date, calls for radical hope: “a commitment to replace the approaching dystopia,” says Katie Stelmanis, who leads Austra with the support of Maya Postepski (Princess Century, TR/ST), Dorian Wolf, and Ryan Wonsiak. “Not just hope in the future, but the idea that everyone is required to help write it, and the boundaries of what it can look like are both fascinating and endless. It’s not about ‘being political,’ it’s about reaching beyond boundaries, in every single field.”
