A.V. Undercover

Austra go-goes for broke, covers “Heaven Is A Place On Earth”
About This Episode

When Austra came in bright and early one weekend morning to record Belinda Carlisle’s “Heaven Is A Place On Earth,” the group admitted it had made a bit of a mistake. When the Canadian electro act snagged “Heaven” off our Undercover list, the band actually thought it was another, slightly more rocking track. Still, Austra soldiered on, learning the track, loving the track, and committing fully for this space-aged Undercover. Frontwoman Katie Stelmanis delivers her best Carlisle, channeling the Go-Go for a modernized take on the 30-year-old jam.

Austra’s latest record, Future Politics, is out now on Domino Records in the U.S and Pink Fizz in Canada.
