Trinity talk about their "Are You?" single


THE ECLECTIC Netherlands-based band Trinity have released a single, "Are You?", through The Fuel Music. Wrote the band, "Sometimes you start a jam with a few lyric lines or a musical lick, but this time it was just a guitar-riff and the Peruvian drum called bombo, pounding like a heartbeat. We wanted to write a song about God that would wrestle with him like so many folks have done before us. A song with new words, new imagery. Mankind has been searching for God and meaning in life for many centuries, often using words and music. And that's great because we need new words all the time to describe a God who's on the move. At the same time he can never be locked up in our concepts or our phrases. And sometimes our phrases become dusty. It's paradox to the max: God the undefinable wants to be known, even becomes flesh in Jesus, and yet remains a mystery to us. That's why during the musical break in the song we burst into this multi-lingual kakophonia of emotions. Because in the end God is something, or someone, who can only be known by loving him. Or her, for my part." CR
