If our vivid dreams had a soundtrack, it would probably sound a lot like an Austra album. Fresh off Austra’s newly released album Future Politics, the Canadian synth-pop project performed plenty of new songs at The El Rey Theatre, including the ethereal “Utopia,” the intriguingly twisted “I Love You More Than You Love Yourself,” and the rhythmically pulsating title track “Future Politics.” Lead singer Katie Stelmanis had us enamored with her impressive vocals as she shared keyboard duties with Ryan Wonsiak. The rhythm section consisting of drummer Maya Postepski and bassist Dorian Wolf kept us moving and grooving. We were also treated with earlier favorites like the glimmering “Lose It” and the melancholic “Home.”
