"ambright", Rock Artist of the Year Nominee (2008 Momentum Awards), is proud to present "flicker", their debut full-length album. "flicker" has already been receiving critical acclaim on IndieHeaven.com, "you guys seem to keep raising the bar for yourselves, with each new song. That's the best gift you can give to your listeners and fans, and it will ensure that you continue to uncover great songs in your musical pursuits" says critic John Green. Not only is the album critically acclaimed, but "flicker" is already receiving fan support on the fan-based voting charts on IndieHeaven.com. The songs "Dirty" and "Shake These Walls" have both reached into the top 25 on the "FanFaves" chart out of over 200 Chrisitan indie songs.
"flicker" moves beyond the self-titled EP release from the band formerly known as Sundown in the City, of just a year ago, in production, performance, writing, and content as well, "I like the honesty (Christians are too afraid to be honest sometimes) coupled with the ultimately uplifting God-ward focus" John Green explains. The band has gone through a make-over since the last release solidifying Caleb Massey as the bassist and Ryan Stephens as the lead guitarist. Matt Thomas takes on a larger role as the album features more piano, organ, and pads while Sean Hill remains behind the drum kit. "ambright" is moving beyond the stereotypes of contemporary Christian artists in approach, focus, and sound, making "flicker" a must-have for listeners seeking something beyond the cautious "Christian sound".
