Urban Rescue – ‘Wild Heart’ album review

Urban Rescue, CCM Magazine - imageIf you’re scanning the airwaves for this year’s favorite new worship band, you can call off the search. Urban Rescue is here. The flagship signing to the Rend Collective’s new label imprint, Rend Family, is more polished and reigned in than their Irish friends, but the band’s melodic talent and crystal clear heart for the church help them carve out their own niche.

The formulaic “Alive in You” kicks things off before the album gives way to more interesting tracks like “Never Stop” and “Wild Heart.” The juxtaposition shows that Urban Rescue is still finding its voice, even as they showcase such great potential. The sweet synth touch of “Fling Wide! Fling Wide!” shows what’s possible, and it’s easy to see why Rend Collective and Capitol CMG made it work. The potential here is great.
