Amoeba Review

02/03/2014

The band formerly known as We Are Augustines is from Brooklyn and makes earnest, rhythmic music in a cinematic barnstomping style. Gurgling synthesizer bass buoys chugging inspirational guitars which then further buoy the post-Springsteen howl/call-to-arms of singer Billy McCarthy. The key movement here is up, and everything on this record seems to have a wind under its wings, blowing your hat off your head and forcing you to run grinning down the street after it. There are traces of U2 here, alongside Peter Gabriel and the aforementioned Boss, though the music feels exceptionally current, the product of a pop-music community further and further committed to positivity, redemption, and stadium sized emotions tucked in the most unlikely places.
