Augustines have just released their new single, “Cruel City”. This single marks the first we’ve heard from the band, previously known as We Are Augustines, since their 2011 debut Rise Ye Sunken Ships. The single just premiered on Spin who describes the single as, “The scrappy vitality of the Pacific Northwest indie-rock scene meets the type of gruff yet sophisticated rafter-raising you might expect from the National”. The move from Brooklyn to Seattle has brought some new influences for the band, while “Cruel City” still bears the trio’s original sound, there is an apparent African-rhythmic backbone to the new single. “Cruel City” will be featured on Augustines upcoming self-titled album due out in January.
