Ryan Adams and Bruce Springsteen flavoured blues rock tainted vocals revolve around a fuzzed up electric guitar grind, ‘Juarez’. This dusky, homage paying to a Mexican town resting on the South Border of the USA, represents Brooklyn trio, We Are Augustine’s continuing commitment to showcase gems from debut album, ‘Rise Ye Sunken Ships’. Gritty, urban life is uncovered through oxymoronic panache:
“I got a drunk for a mother. Got a saint for a brother.”
The slower side to We Are Augustines, slides out through the spindling guitar pushed, ‘Saint Behind The Glass’. Billy McCarthy’s vocals lose their world weariness in favour of wispy wisdom. There’s enough here to suggest that stadiums can start to prepare for the impending arrival of this ranging, anthem wielding Brooklyn trio.
