Where to begin? This band has such an incredibly diverse sound. The more you listen to this album the better it seems to get. Everfound is a band comprised of four Russian-born brothers who, having now been signed to Word Records, recently released their debut studio album. With the backing of Word Records, Everfound have been blessed with a more refined sound thanks to the skilled co-production of the album by Seth Mosley and Pete Kipley.
After sifting through about 75 songs, the band managed to select fourteen songs for their album, two of which are instrumental interludes. This album is infectious, melodic, inspiring, comforting, the list just goes on. Every song has been carefully selected and made with passion, love and understanding.
“God of the Impossible.” is an infectious prayer of faith that stays with you long after you have listened to it. The band utilized Isaiah 6:8 as the template for this song, proclaiming: “I won’t back down cause I believe, You are the God of the impossible, Here I am, send me.” “Never Beyond Repair” carries with it the message that we are never beyond God’s gracious grip. Their music has such an encouraging and Godly, Gospel-centered message and the entire album is so pleasing to listen to.
“Go” speaks about being tired of sitting in the background in life, and instead leaving behind your past and being ready to make a difference in the world. Trusting God may be hard at first but you will see how much stronger you are with Him than you are alone. “If God is for us, who can be against us?” The song “Unless” speaks about how we would be nothing unless we let the miracle, in this case God, take control of our lives. Through the power of God we are given strength and purpose, there is a reason that we are alive, and that reason is to speak the truth into the world.
“Take This City” reminds me a lot of Chris Tomlin’s “God of the City”, a ballad calling for Christ to revive our cities. I am sure that I am not the only one who has cried out to God when things seem to go wrong and I think my life is falling apart, and you wonder if He was even there, and if he is you wonder if He cares. “Hurt” tells it all through the eyes of our Savior. Jesus has been through everything we have been through. Jesus was a man just like us, he experienced emotion, pain, hunger, everything we struggle with he has dealt with too. “Hurt” is a heartfelt song of comfort, letting us know that “You can run to Me (Jesus), I’ve felt it all”
If you are a fan of alternative rock I recommend you get this as soon as possible. I seriously can’t get enough of this album, and I imagine that it is going to be very successful. “Everfound” is packed full of hope-filled emotional rock songs. This album is by far the catchiest, most energetic and emotionally engaging alternative rock album I’ve heard this year.
Mark my words friends: Everfound are going to be HUGE!
This week’s Song of The Week is: “Hurt”
