Sugarfist by Eleventyseven on Apple Music

12 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

Eleventyseven's fourth album, Sugarfist—a mix of newly recorded tracks and cuts from the Quota EP—takes an eclectic approach that shimmers with techno touches and rocks with a punky edge. Like fellow Christian pop/rockers Hawk Nelson and FM Static, Eleventyseven loves to poke fun and commiserate with the twentysomething crowd. This time out, lead singer Matt Langston displays his usual angst-ridden zest as he laments the daily grind (“Quota”), satirizes entertainment overload (“Milk the Lightning”), and offers sympathy for heartsick students (“College Girls”). Particularly pointed in its satire is “Wasted,” which likens the corporate church experience to the numbing effects of substance abuse. “Suburban Love” (a yearning number about romantic fantasy) and “Lonely” (a playful look at a believer’s fitful connection with God) are more subdued tunes awash in old-school synth textures. Vigorous power-pop workouts like “Don’t Want to Fall,” “Book of Secrets,” and “Divers in a Hurricane” deliver a sweet uplifting kick with a clean finish, sure to please Eleventyseven’s faithful fans.

About Eleventyseven

South Carolina-based Christian punk-pop trio Eleventyseven formed during high school and consists of Matt Langston (vocals, guitar), Caleb Satterfield (bass), and Jonathan Stephens (drums). Within their first few years after forming, they had independently released one LP and a few EPs.
