Lovelite - All Color

Reviewed by: inthemidst (09/08/09)
Lovelite - All Color
Record Label: Come & Live
Release Date: November 18, 2008

Who?

Lovelite is an Indie/Christian outfit from California. This is their second national release behind their self-titled, self-released EP. Full-time band members, also the main songwriters, consist of Andrew and Jen Polfer.

How is it?

Great. In this watered-down genre, Lovelite provides an original mixture of mainstream indie-alternative rock, in the vain of Keane and Coldplay, and fuse it with contemporary worship, joining the ranks with fellow CCM-blaspheming The Glorious Unseen (Tooth & Nail/BEC). The musicianship is just as good, if not better, than anything at the top of the ranks of the "secular" industry. Lovingly and gently layering sheets of guitars in combination with extraordinary songwriting. Although the musicianship is incredible, it is only outmatched vocally, which is where this album truly shines. The Polfer couple provide beautifully harmonized melodies throughout All Color; exchanging leads, and also backing each other up. Neither voice outshines the other. Their voices were made for each other.

I just downloaded that sampler last night, and it's great. They did a good job of choosing each band's best song and most powerful song. I didn't know much about the label until I checked out their site yesterday morning out of curiosity. I've known about a few of their artists for a while, but didn't know much about the label. I loved what I read about it. Very inspiring.
