This five-piece, energetic girl band from Nashville are bringing a new hope for teenagers around the world as they declare that Christ is cool! The first song "While We're Young" isn't the One Direction number but is a refreshing cut telling the message that if you go through hard days there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. "Count Your Rainbows" has a bit of a Taylor Swift country vibe. A particular standout is "Love Like Crazy" where the girls team up with Christian boy band Royal Taylor. 1GN also make a pitch at clubland with some danceable beats on "Vertical" while the slower "Invade" is a Euro sounding beat ballad. In fact, throughout the production from Jason Ingram, Casey Brown and Jonathon Smith is top rate. In a culture where all kinds of shallow young ladies are presented to us as role models, it's heartening to encounter a group like this who clearly have something to say and the talent to say it creatively.
