Austra – Utopia (Official Video)

 

Toronto-based electronic outfit Austra have just announced their third album, Future Politics, to be released early next year. It will be a follow-up to 2013’s LP Olympia and 2014’s EP, Habitat. In addition to this great news, the recording project led by Katie Stelmanis has also shared a minimalistic, yet absorbing new video for the first single from the album, “Utopia”.

On their Facebook page, Stelmanis said: “Each person’s fantasy of the future is valid and possible and one should never feel like their imaginations can’t become the truth. I’ve written new music while following this path and am completely terrified (partially excited) to share it with you.”

Future Politics will be released January 20 with the following tracklist:

1. We Were Alive
2. Future Politics
3. Utopia
4. I’m A Monster
5. I Love You More Than You Love Yourself
6. Angel In Your Eye
7. Freepower
8. Gaia
9. Beyond A Mortal

Hot Chip – Need You Now (Official Video)

 

Hot stuff from Hot Chip to brighten up this gloomy morning! The band have shared another song from their upcoming album, Why Make Sense? (out May 18). ‘Need You Now’ comes along with a cool, time-bending and surreal video in which Alexis Taylor is chasing his other self. Deep, but still very light and dancey electronic tune, absolutely fantastic!

Jamie xx – Loud Places (ft Romy)

What a happy Friday morning! Jamie xx has just shared a video for his latest (and how beautiful!) single ‘Loud Places’ (featuring The xx’s lovely Romy Madley Croft). The song forms part of his debut solo album, In Colour, (out June 1st). The LP will include his previous singles ‘Sleep Sound’, ‘Girl’ and some tracks recorded in collaboration with other artists like Four Tet or Young Thug. How delightful! ❤

The 2 Bears – Angel (Official Video)

British duo The 2 Bears have released a video for their new single ‘Angel (Touch Me)’, to be found on their forthcoming album The Night. The song itself with its very light, delicate beat could appear a bit boring, but the video is worth watching 🙂

Austra – Habitat

Canadian electropop group Austra are back with a new EP Habitat and here is the title track from it. Very deep electronic tune, uplifting vibe and haunting vocals from Katie Stelmanis. Magic, magic!
