Earlier this year, Austra
released their excellent album, Future Politics.
It featured the song and video for "I Love You More Than You Love Yourself
," a dark and spacey portrayal of what depression looks like. Now, just when we've started to crave more from the Canadian band, they have shared "Change The Paradigm," a track that never made it onto the record. With its glassy synths and futuristic, ominous tones though, it fits in line with the rest of the record perfectly.
The group shared in a statement, "I wish 'Change the Paradigm' had made it onto the record because it directly embodies what I wanted to express on Future Politics
– that the most powerful tool we possess for creating a better world is our own imagination ... Future Politics
was written in a much different climate than what we have today. It's been difficult to stay positive, but for me the possibility of what lies ahead is not only a weapon of potential, but a source of comfort and faith. We have to believe in the future and our own power to invent it now more than ever!"
