Product Notes

Since 12tribe Records agreed to partner Nlighten in distributing their work back in October 2008 there has been a burgeoning anticipation of this 5-track EP, which aims to gather together the best of their previous album while hinting at what their forthcoming studio album contains. The title, Here It Is could be seen as a fitting way to announce the arrival of a bright new sound in Christian music, but in truth it is deeper than that. Listening to the title track it becomes plain that Here It Is is the offering of a life to God and not a call for attention. That attitude is reflected throughout the EP, and is a fitting way to look at this band's intentions for their music. The EP kicks off to a strong start with Struggle where resounding piano leads the way with a sweetly staggered bass hook anchoring the rhythm beneath plaintive guitars. This is an appeal for revelation and assurance of God's guiding presence in a dissonant world where the disciple can be easily overwhelmed and lose sight of their path; an open and honest appreciation of the believer's weakness at times, and one that will resonate in the hearts of every Christian listening. It leads perfectly into Heart Of Mine, a lead guitar track punctuated by a punchy beat, which centres on the faithfulness of God's love and how dependent we are upon it. Then come the title track, central to the running order and central to the theme. Ethereal keyboards, textured guitar, ringing lead underpin the desire to offer one's life to God and ' turn away from the rest of it '. New single A Thousand Tongues is as the title suggests a contemplation of the ineffability of God's grace and love, to such a degree that a thousand tongues couldn't express it fully. From a gentle piano-refrain, insistent guitar slowly build to a joyous crescendo pay-off and stirs the heart along with it. The EP closes on a bright and pacey note in the form of Light, which in a way gathers together all the considerations of the other 4 tracks and decides that in the light of it all life now makes sense and one can better fully understand how life is meant to be and indeed what life can be. Chirpy paino chords and relentless rhythm carries the EP to what seems like it's natural, upbeat and triumphant conclusion. And so Here It Is becomes 'there it was', until one gives in and pushes the PLAY button one more time. [ words by R.I. Hutchinson ]
