An Album By

The Digital Age

There’s something mesmerizing about Evening:Morning, the debut album from The Digital Age, a quartet of former members of the immensely popular and eclectic worship ensemble, David Crowder Band. It’s proof that worship music doesn’t have to be generically simple; it can be fascinatingly enthralling and emotional.

Evening:Morning pushes the boundaries of the worship genre, delving into catchy pop tunes like the opening track “Captured,” to pop-rock like “Symphony of Grace,” to edgy, melodic tunes (that oddly reminded me of a mix between The Killers and One Republic) like “Through the Night,” and “Glow.” It’s these latter two songs that make this the best worship album of the year. Unique and bewitching, these songs will stick with you well after listening, and they showcase a style I hope The Digital Age pushes further into.

Because “Through the Night” and “Glow” are such powerful and strong tracks, it’s a little disappointing that a few tracks felt a little mediocre, like “Your Name (We Shout)” and the Jesus Culture cover “Break Every Chain.” But overall, Evening:Morning is a superb debut from these veteran musicians. The Digital Age is sure to go far.

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.
