As Summer approaches, the beach scene is already starting to fill with people kicking back to relax and soak up the sun. What does this have to do with Peter Furler’s newest album? I think this newest release from Furler, “Sun and Shield”, brings a welcoming warmth and difference to the Christian music scene.

This album in its rock, at times punk, influences is a great album to jam out to. The catchy guitar riffs and yet overall mellow tones makes it a great album for those lazy beach days. The album’s title track, “Sun and Shield” talks about the character of Christ; He is “my sun, my shield.” Many of the songs bring back some of the classic rock sounds to this album; especially in songs like “So High” and “Right Wrong Girl” seem to bear a blast-from-the-past vibe.

Combining energy with a slightly more relaxed style, Furler is able to use his band’s talents to piece together something good. Furler certainly brings his signature style and voice in the album; still bringing back fond memories to me of the “back in the day” Newsboys. Yet, this is clearly not the Newsboys. The more I listened, the more I began to sense the uniqueness of this album. Not so much because of stylistic genre changes, but because of its clever compilation and its almost indie rock qualities. “Yeshua” is certainly a powerful and worshipful song featuring Mylon Le fever (Famous from his group Mylon and Broken Heart)

I do recommend this album, it’s creativity and uniqueness is seen from its clever lyrics, to its variety of instrumental hooks.
