extinguished guiding lights along their way the trio have survived and this is only the start www weareaugustines com Seen by many as the latter day pioneers of the Nashville rock scene brothers Jake

    video for Swiss Lips themselves and while they could claim just a minor deflation there are no moustaches Sam enthusiastically accepts the hand in hand of music and fashion Our style Indie dicks Indie dicks who ll try to kiss your girlfriend That s our look He said laughing Forged from a melting pot of influences that range from Brian Wilson to a latterday obsession with French electro like Justice and Sebastian the demos that made up the band had been the latest in a line of experiments Only when the demos turned out to be popular online did they fully realise that this band was looking like being the band Everyone liked what we were doing so we just thought oh right we should do this seriously But the sound they ve created like Franz Ferdinand shot through with the spirit of the Beastie Boys is fuelled by nothing more than an admiration and obsession for pure pop Pop has become a dirty word and I don t get it says Sam New song In The Water was written more Fleetwood Mac in mind than anyone else And Scissor Lips doesn t sound R B inflected by accident but because it was written long before contemplating a record deal as a fantasy pitch for Rihanna Now of course their people could get it considered for RiRi s next album but they like it too much themselves to give it away Which begs the question of what does make a great pop song Hooks Hooks and melodies basically We re big fans of melody Brian Wilson s my favourite songwriter ever the way his melodies are so catchy but make you feel something Listen to something like Don t Talk Put Your Head On My Shoulder it makes me sad but in an amazing way You just want to make people feel something I guess And pop music can do that better than any other kind of music it makes people feel great or tear their heart out We want to make music that makes grown men in denim jackets go bleary eyed The formidable shadow of Manchester s musical history of course hangs heavy over every new band coming out of the traps But they re taking it in their stride Manchester was one of the first places that found the middle ground between guitar bands and dance music and that s probably something we re still trying to do We re a band and we ve got guitars and live drums but we re still trying to find dance music and we ve got a song called Danz so I guess that has lived on with us but we missed out on all that scene It doesn t affect us I think it ruins bands if they try too hard to fit into that It would be stupid if we tried to be New Order It would make no sense In fact these guys have played in everything
