When a band prays together more than they rehearse, you can be assured their draw together is spirit filled and God focused. After uniting to play a typical youth event this band soon realised God had a lot more in store for them and they embarked on a Living Room Worship tour. This, The Remission Flow's second album, is an impressive followup to 2012's 'The Light That Floods'. "Before The Dawn" with its catchy chorus melody is sure to be a hit while still being centred as a worship song in setting and lyrics that echo "You hold me up when my heart has been beaten down." There is a consistency through all tracks on the album, giving all round completeness and solid delivery. "More Like You" packs an earnest cry with some sweet harmonies. Cross Rhythms has mentioned before that producer Trevor Michael's tiny 7Core Music is making some of the best music around and 'Rhythms Of Grace' keeps the standards high.

Irish band The Remission Flow reached number 16 in the iTunes alternative album chart in Ireland with their début album The Light That Floods.
In Rhythms Of Grace, their second album, the band’s sound has matured further following touring in the UK and Ireland. They’ve developed their own style which at times has been compared to ‘Kings of Leon meets Snow Patrol’ or an Irish ‘City Harmonic’. The music includes catchy, poppy hooks mixed with soaring guitars and passionate vocals with lyrics that speak of the depths of God’s love, the truth of his sacrifice for us and the Rhythms of his Grace.
