Worship Spotlight: Gungor

Sometimes you stumble upon something that’s just too good to hold onto and not tell everyone you know about it.  Gungor, a self-described liturgical post rock 4 piece, is one of those somethings.  I happened to find these guys by browsing a friend’s church’s Facebook profile.  They posted an acoustic version of the band’s Beautiful Things, the title song off of their new 13 song full length album. I’m not going to describe in detail what their style is like, nor say much about who they are and what they do.  I’ll let the following videos speak for themselves.  But allow me just to bolster, or explain, what was previously mentioned quickly.  Gungor is a liturgical post rock band because their musical style has been self described as a combination of Sigur Ros, Muse and  Sufjan, and they’re liturgical because, well, they write worship music.  If you have a few minutes, take a listen to these videos.  It’s well worth your time.  And, if you like their music so much that you want to play it, well head on over to their website — www.gungormusic.com — and download the chord charts.

    I love this worship style and I love how open-minded these guys are when it comes to worship. I’ve always loved the song “Wrap Me in Your Arms” by Michael Gungor and I’m really hoping we can worship God to that song this fall for Prayer and Praise nights. I’m really hoping and praying that the Youth in the Salvation Army will begin to experience God in a powerful way during worship and fell the call to be made holy and sanctified. See you guys there!
