Electro Pop Anthems With Heart And Soul
for KING & COUNTRY have spent the last decade steadily building an international audience. The Australian duo are now based in the States, where their Christian driven lyrics have found not just a place in the hearts of their fans, but they have been rewarded with two Grammies and numerous other accolades. However, having taken time between their 2014 sophomore, 'Run Wild. Live Free. Love Strong.', and their latest release, 'burn the ships', to focus on other career opportunities and their personal lives, their return sees them take a very different sonic shape.
Having been known for the pop leaning country/folk sound, 'burn the ships' sees the duo take on a fully fledged electro pop sound, which will not only appeal to their core Christian audience but continue to propel them towards international superstardom.
For burn the ships is much more than a new album by a Christian act with a niche audience, it is a mainstream chart contender. Whether it is the anthems 'joy.' and 'God Only Knows' or the more tender 'Hold Her' that takes the crown is dependent upon the listener's mood.
All I can say is I can't wait for this to top the charts internationally and to celebrate with the Smallbone brothers as they fill stadiums the world over.
Oh, and one last thing, surely there is a fully collaborative album in the future with their equally talented wives Moriah and Courtney, for album closer 'Pioneers' is harmony heaven.
