Currently Obsessed with: Hillsong Young & Free

Earlier this week (Monday), Hillsong Young & Free released their debut album, We are Young and Free. You guys don't even understand how excited I was for them to release it! Ever since Darell had introduced them to me in the beginning of the summer, I'd been obsessed with their songs and waiting for their album to come out.

Now that the album is out and I'm now free to listen to it however much I want and when I want, I'm hyping myself up for the Hillsong Conference coming up in two weeks! (If you're going to be there, please comment below so we can meet up! I'd love to meet you!)

I love this album so much that I wrote an album review about it for my college's newspaper a few days ago. And yes, I am willing to write about it twice. (There's a sample of one of their songs below!)

As I had mentioned in my article, I talked about how the album has a much more different sound than Hillsong United or Hillsong Live has ever had. There's a lot of techno, dancey-type of songs on the album, but it is a great and fresh change. They're all just so catchy; you can't help but get hooked on the songs. The faster songs are the types of songs you have dance parties to--listen to "Brighter," "Alive," and "Wake" for that. The rest of the songs slow down a bit and are more worship-type songs, and while they have the awesome techno sound, they also resemble some of Hillsong's older music, which is a good mix for these songs. The transitions between the live recordings of the songs are so seamless as well; it all sounds like one.

I honestly recommend this album to anyone who wants a fresh sound of music ringing in their ears. It all still heavily centers around God and worship with the added touches of some modern music. It's a band that is great for our generation. I love it so much. If you haven't already, give Hillsong Young & Free a chance and you won't regret it!

Let me know what you think of Hillsong Young & Free!

Chau for now ♥
