Toronto-based dance music sensation Austra has just released another video from their album Olympia. Directed by Exploding Motor Car, the video for their song “Painful Like” comes following the earlier video release for their lead single “Home.”
According to lead singer Katie Stelmanis, ‘‘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.’”
The band will be bringing the energy of Olympia home to Toronto this fall, so prepare to get your dance on at the Phoenix on Sept. 27.
