Austra share synth-pop political new track “Change The Paradigm”

We know that the Canadian band Austra is one of the most political acts of our generation. With their new single, they are not going to fail to their reputation.

After the release of their last album “Future Politics” last January, the band share the ice cold synth-pop B side that should have been in it. Inspired by the current political atmosphere of a world after the election of the Trump, they have been pretty vocal about their own opinions. As a way of empowerment, Austra use their music to chanel their views without any apologies. About the track, singer Katie Stelmanis stated:

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,” says frontwoman Katie Stelmanis. “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!

“Change The Paradigm” by Austra is out now.
