Overall Rating: +++-
Their sound is what I would consider a mix of slowcore/acoustic
post-rock with a mix of alt-rock. This is their debut album. This meditative
release is a collection of
original worship songs.
Loud Harp seems to place the focus on mood, not melody and it works.
You can easily find yourself lost in
the music. The best example of this is "Hide Me
Way," a slow starter that feels like a pop song at first and then bursts
into an atmospheric cry out to God. Probably my favorite song on the album.
The next song "Your Love Never Runs Out" is equally compelling and
moving. This is a very good project. I'm excited to see where things go from
here. Initially Loud Harp slipped through my radar. I'm glad to see I
eventually found them. Moving forward, they have my full attention.
