What You Need To Know

Amongst Wolves is a four-piece, pop and electronic rock band based in the U.K.. #ChoosetoLive is Amongst Wolves' first full-length album. As the title suggests, it is based on the anti-suicide movement #ChooseToLive (Instagram tag).

What It Sounds Like

The album contrasts the weighty, and often dark, topic of suicide with fun, upbeat music. Amongst Wolves embraces a modern mix of pop and eletronica with their rock foundation. Their style blends well and allows for a variety of energetic songs. There's also a spoken-word song about anxiety.

Spiritual Highlights

Ultimately, the band's goal of injecting biblical hope into hopeless, lifeless situations is vividly clear. Songs like "Voices" is poignant in their directness, singing "There is nothing romantic about suicide/don't you believe it/it's a filthy lie/Jesus already paid the price."

Another highlight is the song, "Defender." It embraces the foundation we have with Jesus as the defender of our souls. The song also features some unique vocals and music found on the record.

Best Song

The opening song, "i just want to feel alive" is a very relevant song, centering on the struggles of a world shut-down and shut-in from the pandemic. But also includes a testimony of having dead and lonely souls before the hope of Jesus. The song showcases the creativity that Amongst Wolves brings--both musically and lyrically.

Bottom Line

Amongst Wolves tackles modern struggles with vulnerable lyrics and encouraging music with #ChooseToLive. The spoken word song "i am anxious" runs long at three minutes which might surprise listeners, but it does have good content.

Also, being pop and electronica, some songs naturally blend together. But with only nine songs, most stand out well enough on their own. Amongst Wolves does a great job addressing suicidal struggles with songs that are fun, yet inject biblical hope and truth. If you're struggling with hopelessness, you need to listen to #ChooseToLive and be encouraged by what they have to say.
