We Are Augustines
Discovered this gem during my last (4th) viewing of The Art of Flight. Its a fantastic song by We Are Augustines titled Chapel Song. In the track, headman Bill McCarthy speaks about seeing his girl walking down the isle of a chapel, but its for another man. He is struggling to deal with it but towards the end, it becomes clear that this pain is really setting him free. “Tear up the photograph cus, Its a bright blue sky…” This song is from their debut album Rise Ye Sunken Ships, which was produced by Dave Newfeld of Broken Social Scene.
Bill has said that the music he writes comes from personal experience and reflection. Based upon this song and the story behind the band, the guy has been through a lot. Regardless of the trials and tribulations endured, he has persevered and in teaming up with Eric Sanderson & Rob Allen has created a winning combination. Check out the track and support this up and coming band!
