Warm, intimate worship steeped in folk, roots rock and gospel

In an era when contemporary worship reaches new, dizzying heights in polish and complexity, the warmth and spontaneity suffusing Simple Gospel make for a radical statement. Steeped in indie folk and gospel rock, the Southern collective craft patiently cycling hymns (“Let It Happen”) and minimalist ballads wrapped in muted cello (“Seasons Change”). Thematically, United Pursuit eschew sweeping commentary on the Gospels for lyrics rooted in the personal and subjective, imbuing pieces like “Your Love Changes Everything” with a potent intimacy.
