Austra is not an idle trio, as they continue to give fans what they want. Shortly after leaking “Painful Like”, they have leaked yet another track off their newly released album Olympia. “Hurt Me Now” is the perfect balance of electronic and ambient, which is sure to keep fans listening.
Olympia, which was released on June 18th, has been causing a buzz in the electronic music scene. Austra’s second album has demonstrated their transformation as artists, as well as their own personal growth. Generating positive reviews, “Home” and “Painful Like” have left fans wanting more. This is why the release of “Hurt Me Now” should be no surprise to fans who have already gotten a taste of their polished and precise sound.
After three years of touring with large names around the world, Austra set aside some time to focus on a track that is extremely personal. Through the emotional lyrics and dream-like melody, “Hurt Me Now” will enchant its listeners. The track may seem dark and melancholy, but its overall intention is to be bubbly and upbeat. Instead of using programming, the band decided to change things up and play everything live in the studio, which further emphasizes their evolution as musicians.
