Highly stylized aesthetics and lushly layered pop might be where to find the roots of States in terms of sound, but the essence of the band holds itself under the idea that creation comes from collaboration.
Formerly of Copeland and Lydia, the members of States found each other as those chapters in their lives came to a close and under the production guise of Aaron Sprinkle, each song’s eclectic axis became multi-layered portraits shedding light on what it took to get States to be a band.
Room to Run is about moving on as much as it is about the surprise of crafting songs free of hesitation.
Orlando-based worship collective, Bellarive, use every instrument at their disposal, whether it be organic or synthetic, to creatively build the grand style of worship found on debut The Heartbeat. Lead singer, Sean Curran’s ethereal vocals have the unique ability to cut through lush string arrangements and sweeping guitar swells creating moments that are at the same time grandiose and intimate.
The Heartbeat finds a band striving to make music worthy of the Creator that also gives voice to a generation hungry for authentic and spirited worship.
