These days, it doesn’t take much to get a party started. The reasons hardly even matter… block parties, office parties, after parties and the list goes on.
In this world of excessive celebration, Phanatik of The Cross Movement returns with his third solo album Party Over Here to explore and expand the concept of a dozen distinct occasions that typically garner the party gathering. Phanatik creatively spins these 12 party themes in order to address key issues for today’s youth and young adults.
While staying true to his unique brand of lyricism and urban theology, Phanatik courageously challenges whether we are celebrating the right things.
Spearheading this thought-provoking exploration, the wordsmith keeps listeners’ heads nodding to the knocking rhythms, while their minds travel to places from the natural to the supernatural.
Songs like Release Party, a play on words dealing with forgiveness, and After Party, contrasting people who live for the weekend with people who hope in Christ for the eternal rest to come, demonstrate the uniqueness of Party Over Here.
Phanatik’s imaginative songwriting forces one to ask several questions: is this song a reason to celebrate or a call for sobriety? Should I be partying over here? What if I’m not partying with the right people? Is God invited to my party? Have I been invited to His party? What happens when the party is over, here?
