Reviewed by Pete Townsend

Most readers will know that One Sonic Society is effectively Delirious? without Martin Smith. Bringing in tried-and-tested American CCM man Jason Ingram to sing with Stu G and Jon Thatcher may make sense in terms of the Nashville-based Christian music market but, on the evidence of this first EP, it has yet to produce anything close to the high standards of the d:boys. From the opening jangly guitar riff on "Our God Will Come", One Sonic Society settle into a blend of ambient vocals with drum loops, bass, synthesiser and some tasteful hints of rock guitar. This five track EP is competently written, played and produced but somehow feels too restrained, as if in the confines of the recording studio the power and vibrancy of the music and lyrics came second to the technical demands of putting together a CD. "Burn" with its breathy vocal over a simple keyboard has a simplicity, which makes the song stand out on the EP. It's on this track that the relative musical restraint evident elsewhere works in the song's favour and its stabs of strings and laidback bass and drums combine to emphasise the challenging lyrics. I think we'll have to wait and see whether the next EP improves on this first one.

One Sonic Society - Itís a name that implies uniqueness, creativity, unity and community.
Itís the perfect moniker for a collective of accomplished musicians and writers united with a shared vision to serve the church by offering effective worship music to pastors around the world.
And while the CVs of One Sonic Society founders are impressive, OSS is more than the sum of its parts. Each member is already busy with a successful career and the goal wasnít to start another band, but to use their respective platforms for a greater good, to form a team that would create songs to be used by the church - new worship anthems that could be embraced by believers all over the world.
'Itís been a calling on all our hearts. Weíre compelled to write songs for the church. We want nothing more than to serve in this way,' - Jason Ingram.
