This act from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, describe their musical approach as "electronic new wave synth pop worship" and it certainly brings something fresh to the modern worship table. An amalgamation of atmospheric background music with mellow trance beats and praise-lifting worship lyrics 'Endless Light' is a creative tour-de-force. One particular standout is "All Glory Forever" which made me want to jump up and down in praise and would be a great tune for Christian festivals. The youthful essence of the album is also embodied in the lyrics focusing on God using and working in this generation. This five-song project is full of little surprises with the music taking unexpected twists and turns. The bonus track "It Is Well" is case in point. It eclectically mixes the classic old hymn with some new beats. I'm not entirely sure it works but it's great to hear a fresh version of a classic hymn.
