Austra shares India Jordan remix of "Risk It"

Today, Austra (Katie Austra Stelmanis) is pleased to share a new India Jordan remix of “Risk It”, the song that launched HiRUDiN earlier this year. Jordan adds their trademark joyful piano stabs whilst looping Katie’s unmistakable vocals, managing to balance the tenderness of the lyrics with a rave-ready sentiment.

Stelmanis says of the remix: “India Jordan recently put out one of my favourite records in a while (complete with a very on point Tipping The Velvet reference) so I was very honoured they agreed to do this remix. The new track is sunny and euphoric and everything I dreamed it would be!”

While Austra’s third album, 2017’s Future Politics, was concerned with the external power structures that shape society, HiRUDiN points inward, tracing a deeply personal journey towards regeneration, dealing with the fallout of toxic relationships, queer shame, and insecurity along the way. Named after the peptide released by leeches that is the most potent anticoagulant in the world, HiRUDiN is about the importance of healing the self, letting go of harmful influences, and finding the power to rebuild.
