D.C. duo takes Christian pop to the rave

D.C.'s Capital Kings use the language of EDM—exhilarating trance melodies, driving Dutch house kickdrums, trap and dubstep's bass weight—to give their Christian pop songs drama and thrust. On II, Jon White's teen-crushworthy croon and Cole Walowac's party raps are often drenched in hazy effects or draped over attention-demanding club beats, as on uplifting "Into Your Arms." The result is a collection of praise-giving (and praiseworthy) bangers that suggest it is indeed possible to "Live for the Drop" and live for the Lord at the same time.
