Christian Music News, New Christian Music News She’s known for her supporting role in Jonathan Thulin’s No. 1 hit song, “Dead Come to Life,” but now pop singer Charmaine is delivering hit songs of her own, with the much-anticipated release of her Love Somebody EP on June 17.

The EP is the Australian-born artist’s first new material in four years, when the critically acclaimed Love Reality album released. Now, fans get a glimpse of the new direction Charmaine is taking sonically, with upbeat, bright synths painting a positive landscape with a  message that has remained consistent throughout her career.

Charmaine is already earning industry praise with only just four songs.—who dubbed Charmaine one of the Top 10 most underrated artists in Christian music—gave the Love Somebody EP an exceptional 4.5-star rating, calling it “a collection of excellent electronically driven pop tunes delivered by a versatile and powerful voice.”

Starting with the head-nodding hit title track single, “Love Somebody,” Charmaine drives the point home by singing about how God’s love has changed her life, and in turns what that love does for others. 

“All The Lights” is an epic, big-sounding anthem that is sang from God’s perspective, a message that despite difficulty in life, God will use the lights in the world—people carrying His love—to lead them back to Him. 

The bouncy, vivacious “Play the Song” frames our lives as a song, and, as Charmaine says, “when God plays it, we come alive.” The tune showcases Charmaine’s formidable vocal range, as well as her playfulness.

Future chart-topping single “Empire” employs energetic 1980s-sounding synths, a catchy hook and even a rich saxophone solo as Charmaine sings about how loving others is, in fact, building an empire—the Kingdom of God.

Love, it seems, is the calling card of Charmaine’s songwriting. 

“I try to see it from another perspective,” Charmaine says. “I don’t know if I could or if i actually want to because, God is love and everything He does is through love. [In scripture], He is consistently talking about loving God and loving everybody else, and unless we’re loving everybody else, it’s not truly living. I can’t escape it, and I really believe in it.”

The Love Somebody EP is available on iTunes, Amazon and other digital outlets.
