New Music Video- Austra - Painful Like

Austra has released a slimy new video for their new song “Painful Like” from Austra’s new album Olympia out now on Domino. There’s more than just slimy, space alien-looking features in this video, it’s almost like a vintage video game.

Katie Stelmanis of Austra said of the video: ‘‘The main influence was 90’s sci-fi movies like The Ninja Turtles, Super Mario Bros and Garbage Pail Kids where all the visual effects are done by hand and look really gross. We asked Exploding Motor Car to make the video cos they specialize in hand-made effects and puppet-making. ‘Painful Like’ is a song about living life in the sidelines.’”

Austra have a show coming up at the Echoplex on Sept. 9. Buy your tickets here! They also play the Hollywood Bowl on Sept. 29 with the XX and Chromatics! You can buy your tickets here!
