Introducing: We Are Augustines
One of our new favorite bands that we’ve been working with lately goes by the name We Are Augustines. This Brooklyn based band is the product of Billy McCarthy and Eric Sanderson, who started the project in 2009. Their new album, Rise Ye Sunken Ships, debuted yesterday and is available for purchase on iTunes as well as for streaming on Grooveshark.
The 12-track album is an incredibly moving journey of love, loss, redemption and triumph; with tones reminiscent of some of the more anguished moments in The National’s “Boxer”. The intriguing music video for the single “Chapel Song” helps to introduce their story, and was enough to hook us in to the rest of the album. I highly recommend reading their full story from the band’s website to really get a feel of how the music was born; it’s truly an impressive tale.
