Welcome to Godly Girls For God
Glorifying God and Encouraging Others.

Unspoken, the band Unspoken’s self-titled album, was released in 2014. Although the band may not be largely known at this point, two tracks off this album have become quite popular radio hits and introduced Unspoken’s positive, uplifting style to the world. Unspoken is the band’s debut album that practically glows with truth that is relevant to Christians in their daily life.
Two of the tracks off Unspoken are radio hits. The first of these, Start a Fire (track no. 1), is a prayer for God to give us a passion to reach the world. Pop and R&B sounds blend together in this track to create an energizing, can’t-get-it-out-of-your-head song. You can see the official music video, which I enjoyed, here. Unspoken’s current radio hit, Good Fight (track no. 3), is an encouraging message to all Christians to “…press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us,” as the Bible says in Philippians 3:14.
The main themes of the album came from the Sermon on the Mount, a popular series of teachings in Matthew 5 and 6, according to the band’s website. The theme of not worrying about the future is expressed in Tomorrow, which has a powerful message about trusting God to take care of us in our tomorrows. Everything talks about how if we have God’s love, we have everything that we truly need.
Though there are several catchy songs on Unspoken, a deeper meaning comes across in some of the more contemplative melodies. According to Unspoken’s website, several of the tracks record the story of how Chad Mattson (the lead singer), found redemption despite being addicted to drugs. I can see this theme in: Call it Grace, Who You Are, and My Recovery. These are powerful, more acoustic-sounding songs that speak of God’s wonderful grace and redemption. Mattson’s story gives Unspoken a deeper meaning; it is more than just a collection of songs, it is a testimony.
As a first album, Unspoken is surprisingly real and mature. Unspoken really defined their style and message in this album, and I hope that we will see more of the same kind of style in the future. For those interested, Unspoken recently released Unplugged, which features acoustic versions of their hit songs, plus five new songs, according to their producer’s website.
