Austra "Future Politics" (video)
Published Dec 05, 2016Katie Stelmanis-led Toronto electro-pop project Austra will return with their latest album Future Politics early next year, and they're teasing its impending arrival with a new video for the title track.
The clip was directed by Allie Avital, and she and Stelmanis have offered up a joint statement about the new visuals.
"Future Politics is the breaking down of paradigms," they said. "In this video, we wanted to explore what a world might look like if our values were transformed: instead of glorifying labour, maybe we could learn to glorify the act of doing absolutely nothing."
Watch a bunch of suits abandon their dystopian day jobs in favour of the utopian art of chilling the fuck out in the video for "Future Politics" below.
Future Politics is out January 20 via Domino/Pink Fizz Records, and you can see the band's upcoming tour dates here.
