Label: Essential Records
On their major label debut, Christian rockers Red explore themes of passion and redemption. Harnessing ethereal strings, strong guitars, and powerful lyrics, the group strives for a deeper connection with its audience, rather than just sounding pissed-off or cynical. Songs like "Pieces" and "Lost" speak directly to the hearts of both secular and spiritual audiences alike. Listeners can easily replace the track's original focus on God with a friend or lover. With this debut already receiving a Grammy nod, one can only wonder what's next in store for this evolutionary rock band.
