Gungor. So mysterious, so good. The multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter and composer, Michael Gungor, along with his wife, Lisa, lead this fresh musical collective. Gungor creates experimental, honest and really excellent music. A deluxe edition of their latest album, I Am Mountain, is to be released on 8th July.
It is tricky to ‘label’ Gungor’s music as one certain genre. In fact, I don’t think Alternative Rock encompasses the array of stylistic choices that can be heard in their compositions. I Am Mountain is a journey. The songs on this album are all so unique and stimulating, ranging from vibrant and uplifting to slow and sombre pieces.
I Am Mountain may not advocate outright Christian lyrics but after listening to the songs, I would say that the excellence with which the album has been created is a form of worship. The songs are so beautiful and so different and the lyrics really describe the deeper subtleties and beauty of a relationship with God.
