Awesome New Artist and Album? Well, Hello...
Posted February 29, 2012
I love Christian music, and since late 2009, I've rapidly been expanding my horizons of the genre and its many sub-genres. There are a great many artists who just don't get noticed as much, and that's one of the great things about NRTradio. And one band has explosive potential and should be getting more attention than it is now. The band is We Are Leo. The album is Hello. And they are both INCREDIBLE.
I first heard their single Live for Love on NRTradio, and I found it to be one of the most upbeat and fun songs I'd ever heard! And thus, while looking around iTunes one day in August, shortly after the album was released, I decided to get a sample of their music. And you know waht? I WAS BLOWN AWAY! While I knew Live for Love was great, I had no idea just how great these guys are! For every song on the album, it was love at first minute-and-thirty-second-clip! Supernova Sunrise has an undeniably awesome sound and a singableness that is just so addictive, not to mention a fantastic new music video (hint hint, chex it outz!). Heartbeats is such an epic and beautiful song that I found myself singing it even though I didn't know the words beyond the chorus! Oxygen is so sweet, and Seventeen is so upbeat, and I'm With You is so touching, and Remember You is so cool... it is an extremely rare happening to find an album full of absolutely nothing but gold! I love upbeat, fun, singable songs with a message and HIGHLY recommend them! And one quite possibly my favorite on the album (though I'm notoriously known for having trouble picking "just one" favorite when it comes to stuff I love) is Colors. What an incredible testament to God! What incredible lyrics! And what an amazing way of making a powerful song upbeat enough that it doesn't lose my attention! I hope that We Are Leo's amazing success will continue throughout their careers and that their music will make its way to Christian radio throughout the country! An undisputed 5 STARS!
