TFK’s single “Light Up The Sky” was featured on EA Sports NHL in 2013, also on ESPN in 2012 along with the song “Let The Sparks Fly” which was also featured on NASCAR in 2012. The band has been nominated for a lot of different things on GMA, Dove Award and Juno Award. They have also been featured on several other things, including, NFL Super Bowl, GI Joe, ESPN, NASCAR etc. TFK has over 1 million Facebook fans, over 96,000 Twitter followers and on their music video “War of Change” over 3.5 million views. That’s impressive.
Now let’s talk about their upcoming album Oxygen: Inhale! I think this album is a lot different than their last album “The End is Where We Begin” that came out in 2012. It has kind of a Linkin Park feel to it. I must say that Trevor McNevan’s voice has gotten a lot rougher over the years. Now whether that’s a good or bad thing, I’ll let you decide when you buy the album. This album is a step in a direction. A direction different then their last album, a good step let me just add. I think this album has a lot of songs that could become anthems, and with that said let’s look at each track.
Like A Machine: This song is a statement about how we can be a war machine, through God we can come through like a machine.
Untraveled Road: I think this is the anthem song, the song you would play at the beginning of an event to get people riled up. This song has some things that just make you think. You can make it, you don’t have to be perfect to make it big in this world or just make it at all in this world. As long as you have God on your side you can do anything!
Born This Way: Try not to think about Lady Gaga, when you see this title. This song talks about how when we have God on our side nothing can come against us or stop us.
Set Me On Fire: This talks about how when we have the Holy Spirit in us we feel like we are on fire! That God sets us on fire. You can try to look somewhere else for that feeling but you’re only going to find it in God.
Give It To Me: We all have burdens and weight on our shoulders, things we regret and mistakes. If we just give all that to God we can be free and in peace. In Matthew 11:28 GNT “Come to me, all of you who are tired of carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest”.
I See Red: The world can be a cold place but with God’s word we can make it through it.
Light Up: If we have been taken by him we sort of light up when we are in his presence. So basically when we have God in us he gives us a sense of peace and joy when we are in his presence.
In My Room: We all have people in our lives that put us down or just make us feel like crap but we can always call on God and he will meet you anywhere and just talk to you if you need it.
Oxygen: This song is simple; God is your oxygen that lights the fire inside you!
Glow: Sometimes we need to just ask God make us stronger, to hold us close, to make us a better person and just let us glow and shine through us.
