Shimmering Synth Pop | Posted July 30, 2015
Saint Esprit (meaning "Holy Spirit") is a new electropop group from Dream Records. Their debut EP released this summer, introducing listeners to their blend of worship and smooth synth tones.

Opener "Wildfire" kicks off this fusion with upbeat, shimmering summer tones in the techno-infused tune. "Never Alone" is a little moodier, with heavy distortion on the fronting female vocals and a darker EDM beat behind the words "I'll sit with you until it's alright / you're never alone in the daylight." "Home" is another slightly moodier cut as it invites listeners to "find our way back home."

The interaction between the electronic elements and the simple lyrics remains measured and engaging through 80s-tinged "Where Do We Go." Although simple, the lyrics don't feel trite, but rather the simplicity works well with the way vocals are utilized almost more as another instrument through the dreamy synth soundscape. "Shelter" is the most worshipful piece on the project, declaring "I won't be afraid when the arrow comes my way / I won't be afraid / Shelter, shelter, You're the one that covers me."

Closing Thoughts:
This debut EP proves that Saint Esprit has all the key elements for energetic synth-pop perfection in hand, although sometimes the execution lacks polish. With some honing, they could be a stand-out voice in Christian EDM-- a genre still largely underpopulated, which means it's a welcome sight to see these promising newcomers moving in. At six original songs plus one remix, this also features like a more satisfying introduction to the group's sound than many other recent EPs. This is a group to watch, and in the meantime, the EP could be a good addition to your summer soundtrack rotation.
