The final EP in the multi-platform 'Dare To Ask' trilogy from Israel-based singer/songwriter and devotional author Simcha Natan continues where the other two left off with five songs which encourage the listener to seek out a more meaningful relationship with God. Following the 'Dreaming' and 'Awakened' instalments and as the title suggests, this chapter imagines that relationship reaching new heights and the overarching soaring analogy is particularly present in the likes of "Thermals" and "Dare You." - both of which find Natan communicating her message at high altitude. Elsewhere, the song of surrender "White Flag" and the quietly stirring opener "Wildfire" show a different but still mighty side to God's character and all of this is once more presented with an unobtrusive but assured vocal from Natan plus some expertly-pitched light EDM production from Jack Kircher and Pete Coggan. In short, this is a fitting end to a purposeful and skilfully-crafted series of EPs from this multi-faceted artist.
