Blue 02:36 video
Friend of mine just between us i’ve been moving towards the light now you’ve gone from my eyes all my life i’ve been so low I don”t know why So Blue I turned five you left mother on her own to raise a child thought she would take her life than to see you with your woman on the side My madonna prayed the child saved her life this way now I’m born again everyday Between my eyes is an ocean you can feel it if you try not unlike a howling wind like a tempest in the open hearts of men So True

All my life has been a surprise faces cast in gold on the fire phantoms colloquial and new feelings aside floating through you All my life leads me to die now Sherlock and Watson decide on a true mystery of the mind one Arthur Doyle would cease to write Oh my love I’m lost again though I try when will I win? You say life’s not a race but if you’re not around All this time has been wasted to find the darkness triumphed over light is the creator on my side? or has he left us all behind? All this life has been a disguise except for the hand in mine belonging to my one true love in Santa Barbara on Hanukkah

about

"Santa Barbara" and "Blue" pick up where last year’s studio album, 'Tomb,' produced by Thomas Bartlett (Doveman), left off. Returning to New York City in the fall of 2019 for a short stint, the Thousand Oaks, California-based songwriter capped off a remarkable year of personal and professional growth by continuing to write new music, while also mastering digital production.

These two new singles showcase the stunning evolution of De Augustine's already auspicious catalog hinted at on 'Tomb' (which now counts The 1975’s Matty Healy and Taylor Swift amongst its admirers). They also mark Angelo and Sufjan’s first official studio collaboration.

“All my life has been a surprise,” De Augustine sings over a lonely Guilele arpeggio that builds into a gentle wave of acoustic arrangements. By the song’s chorus, De Augustine’s multi-layered voice keeps his own company in a time of uncertainty: “Oh my love I’m lost again / though I try when will I win?” With love remaining a constant source of assurance (“All this life has been a disguise / except for the hand in mine”), “Santa Barbara” becomes a prayer of hope and love for those that are listening in their own loneliness.

Both videos were filmed, directed & edited by Angelo De Augustine.
