So here’s the deal. On XR Radio, we’ve been doing Christmas and one of our most awesomest songs we’re playing right now is Capital Kings‘ version of the EVER classic “Carol of the Bells“. I’ve been listening to it and thinking to myself, “Now THIS is what Christian music has been missing.” But you always have to be on your guard when getting excited about new artists. There is always the chance that the first song you heard was awesome and the rest is just kind of. You know… 😛
But last night at XR I received a copy of Capital Kings’ EP “I Feel So Alive“. And as soon as I got in the car I put it in.
This EP has me even more excited for this band’s first full length album I can’t hardly wait! I’m also reconsidering fighting Winter Jam crowds just for a chance to see this duo live and in action! The first track, “I Feel So Alive” has an intense beat, outstanding melody, and the music these boys produce is unbelievable. The quality is absolutely pristine. I love these lyrics, “You’ve got me livin’ how I wanted all along. I feel so alive!” “Be There” is very different from the first track but with this still outstanding production quality, vocals, melody, and instrumentation. “Tell Me” is the ‘lighter’ song on the EP (as far as beat goes) but it is still awesome! And the Telemitry remix of “I Feel So Alive” is indescribable.
The group is doing dubstep…and then they dubstep the dubstep.
Capital Kings is most definitely a band to keep your eye on! Love the music, love the vocals, love the production, love the EP! Can’t wait for January!
