Austra are to release Home as the first single from their forthcoming much anticipated album, Olympia. A beautiful piano driven track with heartfelt lyrics expressing the anxieties of waiting up all night for a lover to return, Home will be released June 17th.
The accompanying video was filmed as one single take and features Katie Stelmanis and her band preparing for a show. The video was directed by That Go (Bat For Lashes / Royksopp): “The band wanted the video to be intimate and simple, which we thought was perfect for the track. To that end we not only kept the format simple, but we also put the camera behind a 2-way mirror so the band couldn’t see it. Whenever someone is looking at the camera they’re only seeing their own reflection and the environment behind them.”
