We're Down With OBB | Posted January 28, 2013
The Oswald Brothers Band, better known under the abbreviated moniker OBB, got their start in Atlanta back in 2008. After placing third in a televised band competition, young brothers Zach, Jacob and Nich Oswald soon sound themselves inking their first deal with Curb Records and preparing for both recording and life on the road.
 
Gaining a massive amount of exposure as one of the opening acts on this years Winter Jam Tour, the OBB EP comes at just the right time. 
 
"All I Need Is You" is a brilliant opening track, immediately sucking you in with an insanely catchy guitar riff and powerful words of worship. "Come On Home" is written to a prodigal child searching for love, but comes across in a less cliché way that makes it a unique song everyone can take away from: "We will look past stains, throw away our stones / With open hearts, we welcome those looking for hope, searching for peace, falling apart, down on their knees."
 
The stirring "Song Of A Savior" wraps its arms around the listener as the lyrics paint a beautiful picture of the unconditional love the Father has for His children. It almost can be seen as a song of reverse praise, instead of us adoring God, it's God adoring us. 
 
"Wildfire" is the most upbeat tune and will no doubt be a fun one to hear live, as the honest meaning of the song encourages all who are listening to strive for more in life then merely living and dying. 
 
"Through His Eyes" ends the EP on a hopeful note, sharing that, while we may not understand the sufferings we endure on earth, it will all make sense when we finally look into the eyes of Christ: "We are never overcome, for He has overcome the world / We are free from burden in His light."
 
Closing Thoughts:
Comparing OBB to the likes of Tenth Avenue North on all fronts wouldn't be a stretch by any means, offering a refreshing take on contemplative pop but with a slightly less serious and more youthful tone. The heartfelt lyrics will draw you into an uplifting time of praise and encouragement, while the folksy toe-tapping beats are sure to leave you wanting more. This is a solid debut EP from a band of brothers who are sure to do great things among our industry.
