From The Arctic
The Arctic is a worship project from a collective of musicians that pursue after God through music and soundscape.
This collective group travels around meeting with churches of all denominations in putting on worship events. The Arctic tries to meet with local songwriters and have one or two of them share some songs before an event and, in some cases, even join the team. The Arctic has teamed up with many talented musicians and songwriters over the past years to put on these events, including artists like Ryan McAllister, Coalmont, Marika, Alex Toney, Achor, Daniel Kikkert, and many more Most of the songs that are written by this worship collective are created with the intent of focusing on God and growing in understanding of him, while at the same time allow for expressions of praise, lament, thanksgiving, and sometimes frustration to the listener. From songs of reflection on the body of Christ like "Diversity", desperation of seeking alertness in "Searchlights" to vulnerability in worship like "Reverberate". Some songs are written stories or thoughts that reflect on situations, like "Lost Lover" which focuses on loneliness. The Arctic have their first single "Diversity", now available on iTunes, Spotify, and CD Baby. They are eagerly awaiting the release of their first EP "Reverberate" expected to come out later this summer.
