Everfound caps off an extraordinary year with their Christmas EP, Resolution. While they’ve held a recurrent Christmas tour, “Rock the Halls,” over the past few years, Resolution is the band’s first Christmas project and is already receiving critical acclaim and satiating their expanding fan-base.
The 5-song EP is a blend of traditional and original Christmas favorites, plus an instrumental take on “Carol of the Bells,” which New Release Tuesday says is, “spectacular” from the band “known for their flawless blend of electronic synth elements and grinding alternative sounds.” Everfound takes on two classic carols, “Silent Night” and “O Come, O Come Emmanuel,” with inventive remixes, including a final verse in Russian on the former, a nod to their heritage and global reach. Australia’s 365 Days of Inspiring Media says that with “O Come” the Russian trio delivers an “electronic/dance-themed remixed melody [that] is recorded to perfection.”
The title track serves as a Christmas and New Year’s Anthem, bringing full circle the theme of hope represented by the coming of the New Year.
No matter what this year will bring me/I’m ready for a new beginning/
Watch over me and keep me marching on/With eyes wide open - Resolution
Resolution is the latest in a growing list of milestones achieved by the band. Just last week, their single, “Take This City (feat. Joel of for KING & COUNTRY),” was featured on ESPN’s Monday Night Football in conjunction with the release of the music video, which premiered exclusively on NewReleaseTuesday.com on November 3. 2014 also brought about a Dove nomination for Rock/Contemporary Album of the Year alongside label mates Switchfoot and NEEDTOBREATHE, as well as the band’s Take This City headlining tour, which ran September through early November.
