Hope for Every Girl

After much anticipation, 1GN (formerly 1 Girl Nation) is back and better than ever with a new and improved sound. Now three voices strong after founding members Lindsey Adamec and Kelsey Grimm moved on to other musical pursuits, they're ready to take the world by storm.    

Powerhouses Carmen, Lauryn Taylor and Kayli begin the next phase in their journey with the bubbly, bouncy and oh-so-fun "Get Hype." Although some might find the lyrics shallow, the song shows both their versatility and the fact that they don't take themselves too seriously. Among the many other catchy, synth-filled anthems are "The One," which overflows with Scriptural truth and a strong message for young girls; "Cinema," which puts God in the spotlight; and "No Filter," which gives a rarely-sung-about perspective on social media: "If the highlight reel is all you see, where's reality?"

"Guard Your Heart" is one of the many songs on Unite that features gorgeous harmonies interwoven with beautifully penned truth straight from the Bible. Similarly, "Haters" achieves the same goal with a catchy hook and a wonderful driving beat.

The standout track on this album, and the one which genuinely surprised me the most, is "Panic." It features strings and has a ballad sort of feel. It reminded me of BarlowGirl's "I Believe in Love," which may attract slightly older listeners looking for some nostalgia. This song truly sets the stage for 1GN to rise to the top as the Christian music industry's most popular girl band.

Between the catchy pop showcased in "Impossible" and the folky campfire sound of "Smile," 1GN can truly pull off multiple genres and add their own flair to them. The title track, "Unite," is a rallying cry for all Christian girls to come together and take a stand for Jesus. But even though it most definitely possesses a Christian message, it feels like it could easily be played on Top 40 radio. And isn't that exactly what we as Christians need to do-- be in the world but not of it? 

The Bottom Line: Unite is definitely 1GN's breakout album. Exploring topics today's preteen and teenage girls deal with and encouraging in fresh new ways, this album will certainly change many lives.
