This new foursome, which hails from North Carolina, has delivered an impressive Flicker debut. Comprising lead vocalist/pianist Britt Edwards, bassist Mike Simons, guitarist Chris Byers, and drummer Trae Drose, the Swift forge ahead with a buoyant piano-based pop/rock sound that boasts vibrant melodies and intriguing lyrics. The songs cover a broad range of topics, from celebrating a friend who finds his calling in ministry ("Tug of War") to debating the perils of moshing at church ("Moshing Machine"). " 'Til I Met You" speaks of the joy found in knowing Christ, while "More Than Gold" is a beautiful ballad that explores the complexities of a faith-based life and how valuable God's word is when we're struggling to get it right. Ultimately, the Swift is a welcome addition to the competitive Christian music scene. Contact 615-771-7179.—DEP
