NEW MUSIC – AUSTRA

AUSTRA – FORGIVE ME

Neat bit of modern pop from Austra which screams Scandinavian cool rather than Canada, whence they’re from. ‘Forgive Me’ is released on on Nov 25 and marks the band’s second release from album Olympia from earlier this year. It’s a gorgeously rendered piece of music – a 4/4 beat and funky little bassline and slightly off-kilter vocals, a plea to a lost lover with no great cryptic lyrical subtleties but pleasantly blunt nontheless. Love those warped bass manoeuvres which are smudged throughout too. It’s not really gonna break any boundaries but sometimes, straightforward pop is good enough.
