Walk On WaterJune 16, 2006
Walk on Water was a Swedish synth-pop band with a sound similar to Duran Duran. Lead singer Tot says that none of them were Christians when they signed to make their first album on the general market Record Station label. “I became a Christian and, as we were making the record, the others got saved as well,” he explains, also nothing that the company was a bit surprised and a little embarrassed by the gospel content of the songs on the final product. The album was a moderate hit in Sweden all the same, with a video for the song “What’s the Noise?” winning a national competition. Frontline picked up the album for American distribution and presented it as the inaugural release of their Alarma World Music label, a division set up to import international Christian music to the States. “Time” is the heaviest cut on the record, featuring scorching guitars. Otherwise, the songs tend toward midtempo numbers with layered synthesizers and stacked vocal harmonies. A few acoustic tracks reminded reviewers of Crowded House.
