Augustines are a band that I completely stumbled on last year. Their earnest and moving songs instantly caught my attention and I decided to check out their album “Rise Ye Sunken Ships”. The album was inspired from vocalist/guitarist Billy McCarthy’s pain and loss from the deaths of his mother and brother. After listening to this album I felt like I had to let as many people know about it.
One of the best songs on the album is “Juarez” which is anthemic in scope with its powerful chorus and grandiose sound. McCarthy’s voice soars with the gradually increasing guitar chords. Check it out above.
