Watch: Austra Covers Robyn

    Canadian Electronic outfit Austra has been growing since last year's critically favorable debut, Feel It Break. Here, the young band tries on a stripped down approach. Watch below as Austra takes the dance beat and freaky vocals out of Robyn's "None of Dem," doing a rendition of the song as a softer ballad.

    The cover is complex while using very few parts, only a couple of voices and one keyboard. The solo piano and harmonies of Austra put Robyn's lyrically dark song into an even more intense, quieter frame. I think it goes without saying, that they do a much better Robyn impersonation than the guys over at Saturday Night Live.
