Canadian Alt/Pop Trio Struggles With Their Progressive Christian Faith In A World Seemingly Dominated By The Christian Right.

After the success of 2011s Award winning The Breakdown, Where Wakeup Starlight scooped up a GMA for Best New Pop Song, the band pushes forward with a brave new album called The White Flags of Alderaan. Just 5 songs, and catchy as hell, the band hopes to make waves in the Indie, Grassroots arena, up against the likes of Mumford & Sons, John Mayer, and The Lumineers. Setting themselves apart from others in the scene, though, is a staunch admission of not only their Christian Faith, but an equally staunch, and even defiant admission of their progressive politics. Making no apologies for their support of same-sex marriage, universal health care, and open dialogue with other faiths, lead singer Caleb Cummings rants. The media has been hijacked by loud Christians preaching so-called Christian doctrine that amounts to nothing but hatred, bigotry, and intolerance. But they are, by no means, the moral majority. The church is vastly populated by good and Christ like people who are reasonable and recognize love as the central and overarching theme of the Christian life. If only they were as loud or louder. A sad realization of a culture, stubbornly being dragged into the new century.

The White Flags of Alderaan opens with, quite possibly, the cutest folk/pop song ever, titled Loco Train (A Canadian Tragedy), and as sad as it is cute, the song conveys the heartbreak and tragedy that, (Canadian or otherwise), we have all been through when we are so rudely and callously dumped by our significant others over the course of our lives. though Wakeup Starlight may have to fight twice as hard as their peers to get their voices and music heard, being so bold in their approach. It will be interesting to find out if this little Trio from Calgary will see allies in their Church, or a small, hard headed Indie music scene known for its disdain of music with religious themes. Perhaps neither. The world is, far too often, unfair.
