Family Force 5 might just be one of the most eclectic bands around. With a unique blend of hip-hop, hard rock, and dance music, this group has something to offer for everyone. Their latest single, Glow In The Dark, is yet another testament of the group’s unique, high octane sound.
At the song’s start, this might appear to be one of their softer songs. The light electric guitars and soft vocals initially sound like they’re taking us into ballad zone, but that just ain’t the band’s style. When drums start building, and the pulsing electronic synths kick in, the song simply takes off. The chorus takes us to dizzying heights, with pounding beat and lyrics that just beg us to chant along. Once the song take us to the top of the roller coaster, we’re left in a state of free fall into a hard rock electro breakdown that really gets the adrenaline going!
Family Force 5 identifies as a Christian rock band, which is a bit strange considering their usual lack of religious song content. Glow In The Dark is a song that will please fans looking for more worship, but won’t alienate the casual listener. The lyrics find meaning no matter how you interpret it, but one thing cannot be denied; this song is catchy, and the vocals are solid.
Glow In The Dark is a definite pulse raiser, with more than enough to offer everyone. I might not be quite as bombastic as their previous Chainsaw hit, but its yet another strong showing from a highly under rated band.
Final Score: 3/5
