Carrollton "Breathe In Deep (EP)" by Brianne Bellomy (cmaddict.com) on 2014-02-10 17:16:59
For those who enjoy the sounds of bands like Needtobreathe and the Neverclaim, lend your ear to Carrollton.
The band's name derives from the town that they meet in to write, record, and rehearse. Two of the band members hail from Ohio and two from Kentucky. The small town of Carrollton is a perfect halfway point. They were originally known as a band called Mosteller, the lead singer's last name, and were a straight worship band. As they have found their new name, they have found a new direction. The songs are written from their daily lives, honest and upfront. Simply, it's their stories put with a melody.
"Pass You By" was the first publicized release with their lyric video here
The basic premise of the song is to not let life pass you by. To not let the little things in life keep you from the most important parts of life. It's a strong, upbeat, get you ready to face the world type of song.
"Red" is a powerful song crying out to God to "wash me white." A cry from the heart to be led to the water and washed clean. "I've got some big scars in need of a covering, in need of a healing." It's a beautiful picture of what Christ can do for any and all of us.
"Holding Me" is a beautiful song of belief in who Christ is and what He does for us. Told from the view of a woman struggling, but knows the truth of who Christ is, she chooses to believe that He is her ultimate rescue and is holding her always.
The beauty of who Christ is and the amazing things He does for us all is the heart of this album and I can't wait to hear what they do next.
