Telecasting Through Many Sound Waves
Several years ago, a Washington-based worship band arrived on the scene. Unlike many new worship artists, they arrived with little to no fanfare. That only added to the charm of their sound-much as when a national coffee chain is compared to a local indie house. Today, Telecast has kept the same underground feel on their sophomore release, Eternity is Now. Taking care not to sound like the bands already flooding this saturated genre, they create music that both glorifies God and displays musical creativity. After being compared to Coldplaybecause no one else could pigeonhole their sound, they even break away from that label. In Eternity is Now, you'll hear a unique expression amidst the many sound waves navigating the skies.
