Australian duo Auguste have unveiled their debut single ‘Slow Motion’. The powerful debut is held together by brooding harmonic vocals and an emotive orchestral sound that’s reminiscent of early London Grammar whilst also maintaining an overall feeling of catharsis as ‘Slow Motion’ pulses and weaves around the listener.
Fronted by step-sisters Skye and Beth, who met as teens 5 years ago and have been collaborating on musical projects ever since, the ‘cherry on top’ for this track, is the ingenious production styles of Andy Bull currently one of Australia’s most prolific alt-pop singer/songwriter/producers and touring artists. Skye and Beth’s soft, strong and carefully considered vocals dance around each other delightfully, articulating a sonic story of lust and desire.
Slow Motion is a song about infatuation and the feeling of complete disarmament when someone you desire walks into your eyeline and consumes every inch of your attention. One half of the duo, Skye says of the track: “Slow Motion is about that feeling you get when you unexpectedly see someone you are in love with or infatuated by. Everything starts to move in slow motion and feelings come crashing in from all directions, both physically and emotionally.”
