Isolating the atmosphere in a hauntingly powerful mantra, Austel’s second single flows with feeling
As the second single to emerge from Austel’s upcoming sophomore EP, “Choke” confronts uncomfortable truths. Austel creates melancholic electro pop music that includes a whole lot of heart and soul.
Lead by a distinctive vocal in her tracks, the intimate songwriting is a pure gift in today’s complex world. Reflecting through both pain and hope, Austel’s work reflects today’s society. Emotive and perceptive always, the multi-instrumentalist songwriter delves into personal experiences and always seeks for a connection with any given audience. “Choke” promises to grab your attention and never let it go.
‘It’s easy to feel overwhelmed and daunted by everything that’s going on in the world at the moment. Political division, the climate crisis, social polarisation… there’s so much corruption and uncertainty. I wrote Choke as a song of defiance and rebellion, designed to stoke up resistance and hope.’ – Austel
Featuring electronic drums that dive into a glitch fused realm, the ethereal melodies that Austel exclaims is to die for. Soaring through an atmospheric drone world of guitar, the elevated production by Adam Stark – Austel’s long term collaborator and bandmate – shines through a hypnotic soundscape. Innovative and a whole lot of space, the creative anthem is a hit in Austel’s discography and will sit perfectly on your chilled playlist.
Striking and leaving viewers simply breathless, it’s no wonder this songwriter is getting the recognition that she deserves. With media outlets across the web and the BBC helping Austel gain extra exposure, this artist is soon to have her name in lights.
