Austra - "Identity"

I was a latecomer to Austra, well after they had received much-deserved hype all over the internets. So I'm happy to be at least a little bit on time with this one. Austra's newest single is "Spellwork" and the b-side is new track "Identity." But don't let that b-side designation fool you. "Identity" is well produced and polished, definitely not a throwaway the band dug up and added on to the back of 'Spellwork" at the last minute. So typically Austra-ish (deep bass, high-pitched wind accents, Katie Stelmanis' haunting vocals), "Identity" sits well next to any track from Feel It Break. Catch it streaming over at disco naivete.
