The Quiet Science: The Rekindling of the Stars

“He took our debts, nailed them in his hands and feet.” Falling somewhere between Churches’ music and church music, this Floridian trio’s third project features airy electronica with God-directed lyrics. The best songs, like the driving “The Beginning,” add phased guitar and drums to produce a sound resembling Of Monsters and Men. The mellower songs take one dip too many in Hillsong United’s “Oceans,” regularly dropping out the instrumentation and gradually adding it back under a repetitive vocal chant. Focusing on the more upbeat selections, a great modern pop EP lurks inside this LP.
