Daily Dose: Angelo De Augustine, "Somewhere Far Away From Home"

Daily Dose is your daily source for the song you absolutely, positively need to hear every day. Curated by the Paste Music Team.

Angelo De Augustine has shared “Somewhere Far Away From Home” from his forthcoming album Tomb, out digitally Jan. 11, 2019, and in physical format on Jan. 18 through Asthmatic Kitty.

“Somewhere Far Away” has that earthen feeling that the album’s title conjures up. It creaks and shutters like a casket, and its drums echo deep in the mix, floating down some metaphorical end-times river while De Augustine writhes over all in heavenly falsetto.

In a press release for his previous Tomb single “Kaitlin,” De Augustine expanded upon the meaning of the album’s title: “Throughout our lives we bury many dead things in our hearts and minds. There they go to rest and hopefully are reborn as something beautiful for the world to behold.” “Somewhere Far Away From Home” feels like the excavation of those buried things. Its subject matter is obscured, but the fragments of the whole show through, feelings covered in dirt and kicking against the light of day.
