Jonathan and Emily Martin are a husband and wife team who were once part of the band Mosaic and are now worship leaders in their local church in Nashville. This is the second EP in a four part release called 'The Overflow Effect'. The tracks on this set are about relationships with God and each other and how that impacts those around us and are intelligently written. "With Joy" has an infectious hook while "Spirit Speak" showcases the harmonies of the duo to full effect. The gentle and reflective "Two Becoming One" benefits from the melancholic cello underpinning the melody but the undoubted standout is the emotive title track exhorting us to look to the cross and showcases the haunting tones in Emily Martin's voice.
