New Order + 4AD = Austra

For Reals

So, mid- New Order (about 1983–89), plus 4AD (the goth/shoegaze/opera-ish ones from around, what the site calls “Then”), equal Austra, but made now.

Anyway, if that’s not random, I don’t know what is. (They also happen to be doing a giant world tour)

Also, I love removing words and using hyphenation instead. Wee, writing fun, wee.
