Augustines New Single ‘Cruel City’ Is A Swirling Anthem

Augustines New Single ‘Cruel City’ Is A Swirling Anthem

Roaring drums, a  majestic choral background and powerful lyrics, are just a few of the reasons you need to add Augustines new single “Cruel City”, to your playlist. The Brooklyn based trio of Billy McCarthy, Eric Sanderson and Rob Allen look a bit like Mumford and Sons and play their music with passion to match. Their new single “Cruel City” which dropped last month (Sept) is from their self-titled sophomore album, due out January 21st, 2014.

McCarthy’s gruffly voice leads this very personal song with inspiring intensity. The sad nature of its words are carried on a very uplifting track, that feels like the anthem to your favorite blockbuster film. There is a lot going on inside this swirling single and you’ll need to hit replay several times to really appreciate it all.  My bet is that by weeks end the views on this indie treat will be heading skyward.



The single is available now on iTunes. You can stream “Cruel City” as well as some of the tracks from their previous record Rise Ye Sunken Ships on thier Soundcloud page.  We are excited at the bands evolution and happy to make this brand new single our featured song of the day for October 8th, 2013.

P.S. Love the video too!
