Setapart were a four piece from North London who have been around for about five years but recently called it a day. They played a brand of music where indie rock meets melodic hardcore. Among their influences they listed were Jimmy Eat World, Cain's Mark and Beloved. However, the songs are upbeat for this genre and come with clear melodic vocals. "Hold Your Breath" features some memorable lines, "Losing the surface, hide my eyes and listen to these sounds/These harmonies you've put within me/These secrets - you've given them only to me.. It gives me goose-pimples whenever I listen to "Imagine This Is You" with the lines "But this I promise you Father/I will fight this fight until the end/I will not lose my sight of you." The guys are keen to keep the local music scene alive and that is reflected in The Hope Collective (www. which they are involved in. Now that Setapart are basically finished, they are helping to put on gigs to showcase Christian bands whenever they can.
