Austra Future PoliticsIt says something when Oxford Dictionary decides “post-truth” is the word of the year.

Post-truth: an adjective defined as “relating to circumstances in which facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief”. The lines defining our lives and marking our moral boundaries may be blurring, but Austra is here with a musical manifesto for positive action. The innovative Canadian group have just released Future Politics – a bold call for radical hope, or as band leader Katie Stelmanis says, “a commitment to replace the approaching dystopia.” It’s a compelling message carried by Katie’s commanding voice across this collection of dance anthems and paradigm-shifting synth pop jams.

Future Politics is out January 20 via Domino.
