Following on from their critically acclaimed début album, ‘Feel It Break’ Canadian Avant-Pop outfit Austra are earing up for the release of a reMix collection, titled ‘Sparkle’.
Alongside some producers such as Planningtorock and Mark Pistel featured in the package is this slice of dark tropical from New York’s raining SynthPop act MNDR. Amanda and Peter get their steel drums going for this mix which, combined with pulsating synths serve to create a mysterious vibe for the previously sparkling track. It’s a totally different mood for the song, but one that is perfectly complimentary to the original.
Austra have found themselves on the Polaris Prize Short List for 2011, which is apparently, in Canada like, the Mercury Music Prize is here in the UK.
‘Sparkle’ is released 26th July.
