If Cape Town were a song | Austra

I’m not sure if it’s the flagrant hipsterness, or the fact that they’re from Canada and therefore will never quite be understood, but something about Austra is the sound of Cape Town.

They’re a synthpop outfit that’s hobbled together from other bands, creating a sound that’s all dreamy, but with a krautrock kick.

There is also a gorgeous piano version of this where you can be properly stunned by Katie Stelmanis’ massive voice, but it’s the full band version of Lose It that’s infused with that magnetic weirdness of a Cape Town city night.
