As Delirious? enter their final year together, it is clear that some things have changed very little during their fifteen year stint as one of the most intriguing and innovative Christian bands around. The release of ‘My Soul Sings’ – one of their last ever new projects to be released – arcs back to the days without roadies or fancy suits; the days of the rawest of worship and the loudest of crowds.
A decade and a half ago those gigs were played behind a backdrop of a hundred different sports halls and community centres. And now with the release of ‘My Soul Sings’, suddenly it’s like we’re back at the front of a faceless breezeblock building, all sweat and expectancy and abandonment.
Yet there’s one essential difference; ‘My Soul Sings’ was filmed and recorded in front of 12,000 Colombian Christians; a pulsing sea of passionate believers who have soul and aren’t afraid to let it sing out into the night sky.
The tracks included do a perfect job of narrating the journey that Delirious? have been on over the years. ‘Deeper’, ‘History Maker’ and ‘Bliss’ represent the optimism of the early days, while ‘God’s Romance’, ‘Rain Down’ and ‘Majesty’ draw on the band’s middle phase that saw them in search of the very heart of God. ‘Kingdom of Comfort’, ‘Break The Silence’ and ‘My Soul Sings’ add colours from the recent albums; bold splashes of tone and passion that catch everyone up in the praise.
Delirious? said farewell at the end of 2009...
