What You Need To Know:
Husband and wife duo, Wild Harbors', debut album Monument is a delightful, refreshing album that tackles topics like marriage, mourning, faith and hope.    
What It Sounds Like:
On first listen Wild Harbors has an indie-folk vibe, however, interspersed through the album is a throwback eighties sound. The eclectic sounds play perfectly with their vocals. The duo's voices harmonize beautifully with each having wide ranges that can play off the other regardless of who is the lead vocalist on the track.
Spiritual/Lyrical Highlights:
"Abigail" is a deeply touching prayer that is grounded in a battle that one of their family friends had. When their twin daughters were born, the friends were told that one daughter wouldn't survive. Abigail survived and this is the prayer and the praise around the powerful move of God.

"Battle" focuses on spiritual warfare. It is a tremendous confession of weakness, and at the same time, trust in a Savior who can fight that battle for us.
Best Song On The Record:
"Come Clean" got my vote for best song on the album when I heard the last line, "Freedom is the presence of the right restrictions." So often we feel that the more we can do, the more we can achieve, the more successful we will be. This track speaks to coming clean from the extra burdens and getting back to the bare minimum of what we need in life. The simple message of "Cut back what you want/Get back what you need," reminds me of a past life lived in search of something more when what I truly needed was much less.
For Fans Of:
John Mark and Sarah McMillan, Josh Garrels, Josh White, The Brilliance, Gungor, All Sons & Daughters 
Final Word:
Chris and Jenna Badeker, the husband and wife duo that make up Wild Harbors, left a decade of other careers behind to focus on God's call for their lives. This debut album is the Monument that marks that step of faith. This album is firmly planted in a position that they will easily be able to revisit, yet also serves as a jumping off point for the brilliant things to come.
