Capital Kings' Second Volume is Top Notch (Album Review)
By Abby Phillips
ImageChristian EDM (electronic dance music) duo Capital Kings released their second studio album, // (pronounced "two"), on October 2, 2015. Capital Kings is a product of the record label, Gotee Records, which is partially owned by Tobymac. With this album, Capital Kings once again establish their place in the genre of Christian EDM. I think that fans of their previous album, Capital Kings, will be pleased by the solid work // displays.
"Fireblazin," a single off of //, features a popular guest, Christian praise-and-worship artist Chris Tomlin. A proclamation of God's love for us, "Fireblazin" explains the duo's passion for God. In the song, they tell us, "We've got a fire blazin' in our hearts. No, we're never gonna stop; until the whole world knows who You are." With "Fireblazin," Capital Kings and Chris Tomlin declare that, as Christians, our lives should be "a portrait of Your love," along to bold electronic sounds and a likable drum beat. The positive, solid message conveyed in this song definitely make "Fireblazin" a key track on //, and one that will be a favorite among fans and critics alike.
"Into Your Arms," another popular single from //, is perhaps the strongest composition on this record. This emotional single tells the story of someone who has strayed from God returning to Him. Piano chords, electronic sounds, and very potent verses expand this song into a masterpiece that any artist would be proud to create.
True to their genre, Capital Kings have a couple of dubstep-sounding tracks on //. Songs like "Forever," "In the Wild," and "Live for the Drop," sound like something a DJ might create for a dance party. However, Capital Kings still manage to blend powerful and compelling verses with electronic interludes. These relevant lyrics definitely set Capital Kings apart from other EDM artists. Not only is their music good to dance along to, it is also food for the soul.
// is a mature work by Capital Kings. As I pointed out earlier, it is more than just meaningless electronic tracks; it is filled with soul-searching lyrics. Their dubstep tracks are masterfully crafted works that stand out in their genre. If you like Lecrae, Kb, or Family Force 5, I would definitely recommend Capital Kings. Their must-have second volume is top notch.
