Single Review
We Are Augustines - Book Of JamesWe Are Augustines – Book Of James

Brooklyn-based indie rockers We Are Augustines are set to release their debut album ‘Rise Ye Sunken Ships’ in March 2012 but in the mean time they are unleashing their new single ‘Book Of James’ which is an extremely personal song for frontman Bully McCarthy.

‘Book Of James’ documents the most traumatic period of McCarthy’s life which saw him lose his mother and his brother James to suicide and instead of penning a depressing song about the situation he has gone the other way and created quite an uplifting progressive song where the instrumental work becomes more and more unpredictable as the song goes on and McCarthy breezes through with pure love, emotion and passion in his vocals.

If ‘Book Of James’ is anything to go by then I think 2012 could well be an exciting year for We are Augustines, but we will have to wait for that album release in March to see how things pan out for them.
