A Thousand Shores

Seattle alternative band Citizens offers a Christ-centered work with their latest EP, “A Thousand Shores.” “It became clear that this record was meant to be an invitation to step out from behind our defenses and to surrender ourselves into the mystery of Christ,” Citizens leader Zach Bolen said in a release. “‘A Thousand Shores’ seeks to build a bridge between the many groups of people that are being driven further and further apart by their belief systems.” Five songs mix soft and bold pop sounds. “Lovelight” features driving guitars and is an encouraging, happy song. The chorus states, “I’m walking in the light; I’m seeing in the light; I’m following the light; I’m growing in the light; I’m living in the light; I’m carrying the light; (Lovelight, lovelight, love); I’m living in the lovelight.” The title cut focuses on Jesus as everything, “a thousand shores,” and “Everything and More” attempts to describe God. This record boasts powerful lyrics and a pleasing sound. (Integrity Music/Running Club Records)
