I know I shouldn’t love you.

I know I shouldn’t love you.

I’ll come out and say it. I’ve often had a hard time with music that has the ever so slightest hint of pointing towards the Christian-genre. It mostly has to do with my antagonistic nature and wanting to be difficult, but sometimes, there’s things that you simply cannot deny.

In 2012 I was captured by  masterpiece, Through the Deep, Dark ValleyHymn-like verse structure, anthemic crescendos, and one of the most perfect boy/girl harmonies that I’ve heard in awhile. It just stuck with me. I got past the references and enjoyed the music to its core.

Fast forward 3 years later and I am just warmed by the fact that these guys have been cooking up something in that void of time. Building onto their previous release as volume II, the duo has crafted their newest album, Dear Wormwood, as “a collection of letters, all written by a single protagonist and addressed to a single recipient, a conversation to which the listener is an observer as a relationship gone wrong reaches its breaking point – the words and music are at times affectionate and bittersweet, at others resigned and resolute.”

Listen to a couple of singles below and get on that pre-order (album due 10.16).
