Nalini Tranquim

Nalini Tranquim
Today | Tomorrow

Street Date: November 23, 2014
Style: Alternative
Artist Website: www.facebook.com/nalini.tranquim


Nalini Tranquim was first introduced to Jesusfreakhideout readers back in January with her single for "As You Are." The Australian singer/songwriter/pianist is finally releasing her first full-length album after jumping into the music ministry full-time. Nalini brings an amazing voice and tons of musical talent and diversity to the table. Songs like "Daddy" are dominated by the piano and really showcase her voice, but others like "It is Time" bring a little more energy and edge with a driving rhythm and distorted guitars. Nalini even gives a pop/dance vibe off in "Resonating." For the most part, Today | Tomorrow is CCM, but it's definitely quality material. The easiest comparison to make, though it's not an exact match, is Plumb. I realize that statement is pretty high praise, but it's well-deserved. Nalini also sometimes gives the feel of some slower Evanescence material. The music is dark and moody at times, but the lyrical content is always Christ centered and focused on praise. Album highlights include "It is Time," "Stripes," "I Will Run," and "Just As I Am - You Take Me."

Nalini Tranquim is a new kid on the block of Christian music, but her devotion to music as a full-time affair has yielded some impressive fruit. If Nalini can keep releasing music on this level, and with this diversity, it's only a matter of time before she gets noticed on a grander scale. A lot of music played on CCM radio doesn't feel as inspired as what Today | Tomorrow has to offer, and Christian radio today could use some more music of this caliber. If you are unfamiliar with Tranquim, perhaps it's time you become acquainted. This classically trained pianist and remarkable composer has something to offer that's better than the same ol', same ol' you're used to hearing from many CCM artists. Fans of Plumb and the like should give this album a listen. It's very likely you will find yourself pleasantly surprised.
