Song of the Day: Mineral - Gloria

By in News | 3 Comments

You might say that Mineral was “almost a Christian band.” Vocalist/guitarist Chris Simpson stated in an interview with NPR last year: “I have no qualms about being a seeker, as it were. But as I have grown into myself, I’ve realized that I’m definitely not a Christian, which is where I felt like I was in the Mineral era.” Beyond the label, the band has some incredible emotional rock music to their name. “I just want to be something more than the mud in your eyes” recalls the story of Jesus healing the blind man in John 9. Another interesting lyric is “Gloria is silent,” which brings to mind the words of Thomas Merton: “Since nothing that can be heard is God, to find Him we must enter into silence.”

I’ve never heard of them, but I like the song. It’s raw while still being enjoyable
