Moving through a vibrant soundscape of future-retro indie-pop with shades of bedroom electronica, 23-year-old Swedish songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Augustine made his critically acclaimed debut with Luzon in February of 2019, followed by A Scent of Lily in April.
Guts is Augustine’s new single and it is a brilliant piece of music. I adore the unique melodies which showcase many creative expressions. Besides, Augustine’s crystal clear vocals create bright atmospheres. Furthermore, I am also a big fan of the dynamic chorus!
Speaking about the track, Augustine says: ”Guts is about a hangover morning together with someone you adore and the irony of you both complaining about your mood when you were privileged enough to go out and have fun the night before. He continues: ”It’s a way of telling myself to shut up whenever I start feeling sorry for myself. “I’ve played this exact piano loop every time I’ve sat down at a piano for many years, but I’ve never found a good context for it – until now.”
You can not deny that Augustine made real art, Guts is a track that has all the facets of a hit. Be sure to stream it as soon possible!
Do not hesitate and add Guts to your playlist(s).
