Austra – HiRUDiN

The fourth album from Canadian artist Katie Stelmanis “traces a deeply personal journey towards regeneration, dealing with the fallout of toxic relationships, queer shame, and insecurity.”

Fun fact: It’s named after the peptide released by leeches that is the most potent anticoagulant in the world, HiRUDiN is about the importance of healing the self, letting go of harmful influences, and finding the power to rebuild.
