Austra are a Canadian band who are going places and getting those places pretty damn fast.

Their debut record, Feel It Break, which dropped across the hemisphere earlier this year is already making waves, shortlisted for the Polaris Music Prize (the Canadian equivalent of the AMP Awards) which was last year won by Arcade Fire. That means critics far more important than us also reckon it’s pretty good. Find out for yourself, below. Austra will be in the country for Laneway alongside fellow Canuck Feist next year, so get acquainted now.
