Aaron Sprinkle releases his fifth solo album after working with such bands as Anberlin, Emery, Project 86, Rose Blossom Punch, and others. With such a diverse taste in music Sprinkle so greatly captures the essence of modern music in Water & Guns. With notes of tranquility alongside hints of progressive Electronica, Water & Guns brings a mix of Silversun Pickups esque energy along with a taste of OneRepublic.
The opening track, Heartstrokes, deals with the issue of rejecting God and in the end realizing His greatness. River of Lead, hits note reminding me of secular bands Bastille, and BadBooks. This is by far the most alterative of Sprinkles records and stresses the indie quality that so many are striving for. With the perfect mix of subtle acoustics, and electronics Water & Guns is a win for anyone with alternative mellow tastes.
I give Water & Guns B+
Water & Guns is comparable to these secular artist:
