As we get ready to bid farewell to the band Gungor, this is my #GungorStory
Before I met @vishnu, my entire understanding of Gungor was the song Beautiful Things, which I new because I'd played it at church. I remember thinking the song was too textured to be a Christian song, and the lyrics were thoughtful and stuck with me.
After I met @vishnu, I went through the catalog and found it compelling, but it didn't fit the reference frame I was in with the Divine. That changed with I Am Mountain and Vapor in a big way--that's the first record that made me feel like there was music for people like me.
That continued (and intensified) with One Wild Life--which is basically a psychedelic trip transformed into music.
I purchased Beautiful Things for my sister the one Christmas and then I had started listening to them after that. It spoke to me at the time, but as I moved forward in my beliefs I Am Mountain was much more fascinating.
I'm going to give all the albums a listen now, see how they speak to me now.
