We have seen over the years that ThePlainTruthband has been on the cutting edge of South African praise and worship. Their sound is a fusion of pop genres of praise & worship.
I remember when they released their first live DVD recording entitled “God above the Universe” in 2007. I remember saying to one of my friends, this is one of the best live DVD recordings I have seen come out of South Africa. It was on a international level and it keeps getting better after every album release.
They have won awards like 2008 SABC Crown Music Awards: Best DVD, Nominated: 15th Annual MTN, South African Music Awards – “Global Chart DVD” , 2009 SABC Crown Music Awards: Best DVD, Nominated: 16th Annual MTN South African Music Awards – “Global Chart DVD” and ‘Best Contemporary Christian Album” , 2011 4th, SABC Crown Music Awards: Best Gospel Rock Album and Best Engineer, 18th Annual MTN South African Music Awards – Best Contemporary Faith Music Album, 2013 6th annual SABC Crown Gospel Music Awards: Best Engineer
This is such an incredible achievement for a South African Worship Band.
Their goal is to raise up a generation of worshipers to make an impact in our world and more importantly see souls saved. With that being said I had a listen to their new single called Shipwrecked (You lifted me above it), from The Plain Truth’s new album “Wave after Wave”
This is their second studio album.This track is very EDM synth and bass driven. It reminds me of Hillsong Young & Free. I love it! This is definitely a song you could do in your church or youth service if EDM is your sound. I personally love EDM praise & worship sound. The quality of the production is on point. You can see this was a well budgeted project. It’s always good to see that a South African Worship band making sure they don’t cut corners when it comes to quality.
