This is the second release under their current name from Bradford's I Am Future, the worship project of Life Church's Rocknations youth movement. The group seem to have settled into a new style of pop-EDM worship, a similar approach to that of Hillsong United. The production by John Rees throughout is of a high standard. The EP kicks off with "Love Let Loose", a high energy dance praise track with strong, coherent lyrics expressing the experience of the Holy Spirit's work in our lives. Though the wind and fire metaphors are nothing new, they're nicely done so it's a shame Mike Harvie's lead vocals sound a bit plain for the classy synth sound. "Heart" somewhat recalls Owl City in style, danceable and with a euphoric chorus ("...how to be freeee!"). A mellow and uplifting interlude builds back into the dance beat to finish this really sweet track. "You Reign" begins with Chelsea Carins singing lead, and her vocals are lovely, with much more of an edge, meshing wonderfully with the atmospheric, floaty ballad. Harvie takes over vocals all too soon and at over seven minutes long, the track seems to drift off into the clouds and gets a little lost as it builds into a congregational song, the chorus going round a lot of times before we finally come in to land. The final track is a dubstep remix of 2014 single "Burn", which I'm less convinced by. Still, it's good to hear how the Life Church youth worship team have developed since their rather stereotypical rock praise days when they were RPM.
