Katie Stelmanis, co-founder and lead singer of Toronto outfit Austra, doesn’t think it’s possible for her to “write in a major key,” but she certainly brings major drama in the band’s new video for “Home.” Striking a balance between classical and electronic, the piano driven single expresses anxiety of waiting at night for a lover to return. The video features a melancholy Stelmanis staring at the camera as a whir of backstage activity goes on around her. Her apparent loneliness corresponds fittingly to the lyrics and makes for a captivating video. Who knew loneliness could be so catchy?
“Home” is off Austra’s sophomore album Olympia, available June 17th via Domino Records.
