From different single releases to EPs, Cloverton has now taken the stride forward with their official debut project, "Patterns". Filled with soaring strings and synths, Cloverton takes their position to greatly impact their listeners. The album is lyrically sound and well-crafted. As far as the pace of Patterns is concerned, it seems to start out slow, then speed up, slow down, then speed up once again. The music and melodies of all 13 tracks draw all ears in and are quite emotive.

Although "Patterns" starts out slow with songs like the instrumental "Anatole" and "Bridge" (Day would turn/Darkened me as I found another love/Tears would fill the sea/As You would long for me/But I see You coming on the way tonight/I see You coming ‘round/I see You coming over time and space again), but it quickly builds up to a faster pace with songs, such as "Father’s Love" and "Glowing in the Dark" (Set us free and set a fire/Light a spark and run it wild/There’s no stopping when it starts/We’ll be glowing in the dark). Other stand-out songs are "Green Light" (It’s green lights/For you to find the arms of the love that lifted you up), "Mountains Will Move" (If you’re tossed and turned by the tide/When the road goes beyond your eyes/When there’s miles of mouths left to feed/When a doubt becomes a disease…Mountains will move), and "White Knuckles" (And it feels like I’m losing control/Cause it’s so hard to let it go/So I can be still a lit candle/You are God).

A downside to this album, and is a personal opinion at that, is as beautiful as they may be, the strings and synths are a bit overdone. This could make the project, not boring, but maybe slightly dull if listened to in full-length multiple times.

This is a solid, full-length debut in forms of penmanship and music style. It evokes the feelings of the heart and brings expression of how great our God is and what He has done. Musically, there could be room for growth by possibly not retaining characteristics (specifically strings) on all the songs and breaking up patterns (no pun intended) of how the songs may sound. With that being said, though, for everyone, artistically, there is always room for growth. All in all, Cloverton has brought a solid release, and they are well on their way in building and establishing patterns of making impacting music for all.

Slightly Obsessed #186: When the Path Ahead Is Fearsome

The room was dark and shadowed, the only sound within its walls the rhythmic whoosh of the ventilator beside my son’s bed. I sat on an uncomfortable chair jammed into one corner of the room. In the faint light that fell from the window across the pages of the Bible I held, I tried to corral my stampeding fears long enough to find some comfort from God’s Word. Outside the door of his room, a cacophony of voices from the nurses’ station jarred our shattered nerves.
