AUSTRA is Katie Stelmanis, Maya Postepski, and Dorian Wolf. They formed in Toronto, Ontario, Canada in 2010. The debut of AUSTRA comes at the end of a long line for the band's principal songwriter Katie Stelmanis. AUSTRA represents the musical progression of almost 10 years of performing as an artist, fleshed out by a full band. More settled and dominant than ever, the AUSTRA sound represents all of Katie's influences tightened into a shiny metal ball - pianos give way to keyboards as songs build and pull, their urgent dark melodies arpeggiating and multiplying through an army of synthesizers, wrapping themselves around Katie's astounding voice.
