AUGUSTANA: UNREFINED PIANO ROCK

If you are looking for a pretty song to tug at your heartstrings, or a pitch-perfect polished revenge tune, begin your artist search now. The boys from San Diego may perhaps be best known for their single Boston, although I must say, MTV’s The Hills and American Idol are not an excuse for listening to this track. Augustana are masterful songwriters, with memorable and ironic twists in their lyrics, especially in Dusk where “If a man can’t lie, how can he speak, if the sun don’t rise, would the moon be out of reach.”

When bands are on the verge of getting bit by the fame monster, many try to make an impression by presenting a pitch-perfect sound. Augustana opts for a more innate, unrefined style. Diagnosis: Piano rock with dream pop, a snack to satisfy every craving! On the track Mayfield the band moans: “Are we going to make it?” In response to your question my boys, I do believe so. Out of all the stars and boulevards, this one shines distinct.
