"We try to approach every record like it’s our first and our last, but this one feels extra special," Tim Foreman says of Where the Light Shines Through, SWITCHFOOT's tenth al-bum and Vanguard Records debut. "The process of making it was a huge struggle, but it was cathartic, and I think that comes through in the music.”
Indeed, the thematically ambitious, sonically adventurous dozen-song set—which marks the band's return to the indie world after a lengthy major-label run—makes it clear that, two decades into their remarkable career, the beloved San Diego-bred quintet remains as compelling and uplifting as ever, delivering inspired, infectious songs that resonate with passion, insight and melodic craft.
Such vivid new tunes as "Holy Water," "Float," "If the House Burns Down Tonight" and the poignant title track address and illuminate timeless spiritual struggles and philosophical dilemmas, while boasting some of the band's catchiest hooks and most imaginative arrangements to date. The resulting album is a significant addition to the rich body of work that's already established SWITCHFOOT as a consistently vital mu-sical force.
