The simple back cover, with a beardy rocker type sat next to a guy dressed like Huggy Bear from Starsky And Hutch, gives the impression that this might be an unusual funk rock debut from DeRock and Brysson - two former members of a hard rock band whose choice of band name reflects their wonder at the breaking down of the barriers between God and humanity through the cross. This five track EP is actually a lively acoustic-based selection that shares a snappy pop vibe similar to acts such as Charles & Eddie or the Lighthouse Family. It's a celebratory EP from the Florida-based duo with the aptly named guitar-based opener "Party Song" proclaiming "My God is King, My God is Lord, My God's forever" and setting the scene for a selection of musically accomplished and life filled tracks. Highlights are the previously mentioned opener, the Celtic vibe of "Goodness Gracious" and the gentle ballad "Forgive Me" though to be honest each one is a corker. A lovely and surprising offering from this new duo.
