With their contemporary pop-rock-electro sound, Chicago's We Are Leo are a refreshing new addition to the Christian music scene. If you fuse together the sound and style of Hello Goodbye, and the catchy melodies of Owl City, you may be able to capture a glimpse of what We Are Leo are about. What sets them apart is their ability to combine this culturally relevant sound with deep and profound spiritual lyrics - "Oxygen" in particular speaks of the hope that can be found in times of pain and desperation. "Supernova Sunrise" with its strong guitar lead is the perfect opening track as it sets out before us the tone of the rest of the album: fun, lively and bold. "Heartbeats" is another standout track whilst "Colours" and "Live For Love" are positively anthemic. Predominately a touring band for the past few years, We Are Leo most certainly manage to capture the live qualities of energy and exuberance on this record. It will most likely to be a hit with the younger generations, although I would encourage anyone to have a listen as the band's talent and passion for God really shines through, making this a must have record.
