Today, electropop act Austra release their new EP, Habitat, through Domino Records. It’s also available to stream in full below.
The follow-up to last year’s Olympia album features four songs: the title track, plus three new instrumentals. Avid Austra fans may be familiar with “Habitat” the song, as it’s long been a staple of the band’s live show. This EP marks the track’s first proper release.
“Habitat is an old song that we’ve waited almost three years to release,” lead singer Katie Stelmanis explained in a press release. “It didn’t seem to fit with the sounds of Feel it Break or Olympia, so we decided to finally put it out as a single along with 3 new instrumental tracks. There’s a lot of live versions of the song online but people have always pressed us to make a proper recording, so we are especially excited to announce these limited-edition physical copies of the EP. It’s a euro-style computer music experiment produced with love from me, Maya, and Dorian.”
