The sound is a lot like Mumford & Sons, except the melody is a bit smoother. My favourite songs are the Narnia-themed (!!! ) "The Lament of Eustace Scrubb" which is lovely - violins, guitar, and other wild-sounding instruments that I can not identify but whose sound I adore.
Another one that I really liked by them was "Second Child, Restless Child." The harmony at the end is gorgeous.
I love this band! Those two songs are really good! I think my favorites are "In Memoriam", "Like the Dawn", and "The Truth Was a Cave". They're like the Christian Mumford and Sons

The depth and creativity of their lyrics pretty much exceeds most Christian artists and their sound is so fun, often really acoustic with a touch of pop and soft rock. Some of my favorite songs from them right now include "One Eyed Cat", "The Past Don't Own Us Anymore", and "Skyline Hill".
Glad you like them! I've only heard a few songs, but I really liked them. Especially this one called "All Over Again".
Has anyone heard the new Switchfoot EP "Fading West"? I didn't like it at first, but now I'm obsessed! I was a little dissapointed with Vice Verses (it wasn't bad, but I just felt like it could have been better), but these songs are really awesome! You can listen to them all on youtube.
Fading West - This is a bonus song, but its the title track. This songs feels a lot like their older stuff (Old Borego, Rebuild), with an acousticy feel and catchy chorus. Love it!
Love Alone is Worth the Fight - I didn't like this one at first, but after a couple listens, I was hooked! This one was on repeat for about 10 listens Its got a very "pop" feel, but they really pull it off well!
Ba55 - This song is so different than anything they've done! It sounds a bit like Mutemath, but its obviously Switchfoot. I like the other 2 above better, but its still good!
Who We Are - This one is the lead single, and my least favorite. I'm not super into it, but I feel like with more listens I'll like it more.
My family and I have really been into this album called "Weight of Glory" by Heath Mcnease. Each song is inspired by a book by C.S. Lewis, not really about the book exactly, but his takeaway from the book. Each song is amazing and if you love C.S. Lewis and folksy songs, check it out on Noisetrade here. Its hard to narrow down my favorites cause I love them all, but I'd say ones to first listen to are "The Great Divorce", "The Screwtape Letters", and "Surprised by Joy".
He also has a song called "Calls That Never Come" that has a hilarious music video! He has quite the sense of humor "Tell me more about Pinterest. It sounds so...pinteresting."
I've also been into a couple songs by Jon Thurlow called "Confidence in Love" and "Jesus, You're Beautiful". Such pretty and uplifting songs! I've also been loving a song from Bethel called "You Know Me". There's also a song from Tal and Acacia's new album called "If You Think" that is amazing! It has a perfect fall sound
