Out now: Koenige & Priester
The eight-member band from Cologne, are headed by Florence Joy with her husband Thomas and his brother Jonathan Enns. Their debut album is under the same name and the songs come to the major themes Faith, love and hope. The band was born out of the interdenominational youth service B.A.S.E.: ’’Oneness so that a young generation gets to know Jesus ” is the Vision Statement. The first single, ‘Because it is love’ aims with tremendous suction force to the brain and heart. The hook is immediately catchy, and in the next moment the song turns out to be most emotional love declaration of all: ‘You are the love’. If you listen to the songs, you can feel that it’s not about theoretical, philosophical, or even theological knowledge here. The pop songs reflect the beauty, the simplicity and the wonder of the small and big miracles in life. Songs that awaken the desire to live.
