The new video for Austra‘s pulsating techno-pop, goth single, Painful Like, might make you want to dust off those old rollerskates you have tucked away in your closet and go on a night expedition like a rebel without a cause. Or not. It’s so much easier to watch Katie Stelmanis and the gang take the lead, right?
Influenced by ’90s sci-fi movies, the video features a clique of wild skaters performing tricks in an electrifying glow while a creepy monster monitors their every move because well, that’s what creepy monsters do. Painful Like is the second video from Austra’s new album Olympia out now on Domino. Watch the Exploding Motor Car-directed video below.
