Austra’s new single, “Habitat”, is quickly becoming one of my favorite songs of the year. ¬†They make dance music accessible to the kids that haven’t gotten comfortable in the deep end of the dance party pool. ¬†Austra coaxes those rhythmically-challenged kids to dip their toes in…then the knees…then to the waist…
At the 1:15 mark, “Habitat”¬†breaks out into a mesmerizing trance beat, luring those unsuspecting indie kids out of the pool and into the dark forest,¬†beckoned by Katie Stelmanis’ soul-piercing howl. ¬†“I want you, brother…I need you, brother”, she says. ¬†Those kids won’t make it out alive.
