Following on from videos for EP tracks ‘Habitat’ and ‘Hulluu’, Austra are pleased to share a video for ‘Doepfer’. Directed by Adrienne Crossman and filmed in various locations around Toronto, the ‘Doepfer’ video premiered with THUMP today and can be viewed here.
Made up of footage taken in Toronto and Berlin, the video for Austra’s Doepfer acts as a disruptive visual meditation on the third released track from their Habitat EP. Accompanying the percussive-heavy dark synth soundtrack, the visual landscape of the video is made up of eerie footage of dark hallways, a dead mouse, silhouetted figures and mysterious textured surfaces, including a pixelated close up of billowing tin foil. As the music intensifies so do the visuals, with an increased frequency of anamorphic glitched disruption. Shot, edited and co-directed (with drummer Maya Postepski) by Adrienne Crossman, the video for Doepfer is a glance into the distorted intricacies of the band’s increasingly experimental musical nature.
Toronto-based Austra’s Habitat, a four-track EP, is out now on Domino. Order the limited-edition hand-numbered 12” here from Austra or download from iTunes.
