Austra aka Katie Austra Stelmanis announces her fourthalbum, ‘HiRUDiN’, via Domino.
Alongside making changes in her personal life, ‘HiRUDiN’ saw Austra taking an entirely different, free-spirited approach to making a record. Seeking out all new
collaborators (including c_RL, Kamancello, Pantayo and a children’s choir), Katie accumulated a vast and vibrant mass of source material, which she then took to a studio
in the Spanish countryside.
‘HiRUDiN’ additionally saw her work alongside coproducers for the first time, Rodaidh McDonald (The xx, David Byrne) and Joseph Shabason (The War On Drugs) and she brought in David Wrench (FKA Twigs, Caribou) and Heba Kadry (Björk, Beach House) to mix and master the record respectively.
While Austra’s third album, ‘Future Politics’, was concerned with the external power structures that shape society, ‘HiRUDiN’ points inward. It traces a deeply personal journey towards regeneration, dealing with the fallout of toxic relationships, queer shame and insecurrity along the way.
