Propelled by a storming electro beat and powerful, evocative vocals, "Beat And The Pulse" is a near perfect fusion of leftfield creativity and solid pop instincts that hits like a truck on first listen and remains lodged in the mind long after, and will defy revelers not to dance in the more forward thinking parts of clubland.

Austra is the brainchild of Canadian born Katie Stelmanis who upon discovering the creative possibilities afforded to her by computer software, and utilizing inspirations as diverse as Puccini, riot-girl, and Nine Inch Nails has crafted an addictively dark dance sound that showcases her incredibly evocative vocal stylings.

Having honed her talents in several Toronto based bands, Katie decided to consolidate her experiences and formed Austra, bringing in long time friends and collaborators, Dorian Wolf on bass, and Maya Postepski as beat programmer and producer.
