Toronto’s electro-pop-goth outfit, AUSTRA has unveiled the official video for “Home,” the lead single from the band’s forthcoming record, Olympia.
The video, directed by Noel Paul & Stefan Moore (aka THAT GO), is mostly shot in a single long-take and is as transfixing and haunting as Katie Stelmanis’ vocals.
A simple and intimate concept, we hoped to capture the sadness and longing of the track in one take through a two-way mirror. The video is directed by THAT GO, a brilliant director-duo from Seattle responsible for one of my favorite videos of all time: Royksopp’s “The Drug.”
I can’t wait to hear the new record!
Olympia arrives June 17/18 via Domino and Paper Bag Records.
