First offered as part of a highly successful fan backed Indiegogo campaign, the latest release by rockers Decyfer Down takes five hand-picked songs from their past albums and reworks them into a fresh sounding acoustic collection.
“Anchor Me” recognizes that our faith in Christ keeps us grounded and provides clarity when the world and our own fears & doubts threaten to devour us. He is the lifeline we can cling to and a refuge to where we will find rest.
“Fading” finds someone calling out to God to rescue them from the darkness of addiction realizing they’ve sunken further than they’ve ever intended to as their life begins to slip away from them.
“Burn Back The Sun” tells of straying from your relationship with God and feeling that the fiery, passionate faith you once had is gone. The lyrics are a bold prayer to God for restoration and revival within.
What I like about the acoustic aspect is being able to hear songs in a more stripped down approach which lends a more honest feel to the music. Strong vocal performances compliment the acoustic arrangements of each track throughout the EP. While it may not be for everyone, if you are a fan of Decyfer Down, you will definitely want to add this project to your music library.
