Worship collective Housefires has released their newest collection, How to Start a Housefire, Part II, which is a continuation of their album released earlier this year. The second part of this project is filled with piano ballads and provides true and honest worship. With their hearts on display, Housefires has provided listeners with another great LP and a new worship experience.
“Can’t Nobody” opens the album with a unique sound and tone. The song begins with a rhythmic acoustic guitar and jazzy undertones. The track builds vocally, as choirs of people singing join in underneath the main vocalist. The second verse begins with the piano, following the similar beat and groove that the acoustic guitar has provided. The song continues to build, adding instruments and shouts of praise. This song brings a unique style to the corporate worship genre. The instrumentation adds to the message of the song, a reminder that there is no one like our God.
“I Thank God”, featuring Ryan Ellis, Blake Wiggins, and Tik Tok sensation Noah Schnacky is lively and upbeat. This song will get the listener out of their seat, dancing and rejoicing in the goodness of our God. The chorus sings, “He picked me up and turned me around and placed my feet on solid ground” as an offering of praise and glory. This track will continue to be a popular option for churches around the globe.
“Mercy” shows the vulnerability and heart behind the artists in Housefires. This song starts off with Ahjah Walls leading, and she shows her heart behind the message of the song “Mercy” and how the Lord has set her free from the darkness of the world. “And that’s what the mercy of God can do,” she shares in a spontaneous moment talking about the trials she was facing at the time of recording. The song itself is slower and worshipful, while still instrumentally intricate with unique chord changes. The track then leads into “Tremble” made popular by Mosaic MSC. The message of this song is powerful and shows the heart behind the members of Housefires.
How to Start a Housefire Part II is filled with worshipful piano ballads and hearts filled with honor and praise for our Savior. Musically, this album is simple, in the sense that many of the songs on the album are slower piano ballad-type songs. However, many of the chord progressions are unique and provide an extra layer to the album as well. Be sure to stream How To Start a Housefire Part II today!
