"Austra is an example of one of the many bands that is very goth but doesn't use that word to describe themselves. Media will describe them as goth-y, and I agree. I wish that goth kids would go and see Austra because I think that they would like it. [Singer Katie Stelmanis] has got the aesthetic theatrical element -- she's very witchy -- and sonically it's got that sort of very spacey dark ambient part about it. Basically, I think that Austra is one of the most goth contemporary 'hip' acts. However, I do believe 'Austra' means 'goddess of light' -- so she gets a minus point for that."
