The musical duo soon to be formerly known as Gungor is currently in process of saying farewell, touring down in the States for the final time using that brand name.
As Michael wrote not too long ago, “Gungor feels to us like it’s done what it needed to do. Said what it needed to say. And now it’s time for something new.”
Gungor’s music has become extremely important to me in recent years. I jumped on the bandwagon through I Am Mountain, developed an appreciation for their older beautiful songs, and was helped through times of struggle and doubt by the truly amazing One Wild Life album series as our family weathered through various health issues.
I wrote a bit about all of that when I reviewed Lisa’s book here.
I have their songs tucked in a De/Reconstruction playlist on my computer, alongside Derek Webb, David Bazan, The Brilliance, John Mark McMillan and Audrey Assad, all of whom I adore. But there’s one Gungor song that fills me with … something I can’t even describe when it comes on, and it’s truly the most beautiful song I’ve ever heard.
Please enjoy ‘Vapor’ and I hope it speaks to you today.
I’ll miss you, Gungor. Can’t wait to see what’s next.
Also, please read Butt Prints In The Sand if you haven’t already. It was inspired by another one of Gungor’s projects.
