Being only a six-song collection of songs, this short release is a mixed-bag of styles with an alternative rock foundation. The voices of Jimmy and Sarah Rietmeyer complement each other very well on all of the tracks, allowing for each of the vocalists a chance to shine. Songs like "All of Me" and "Take My Hand" carry a sound more reminiscent of mainstream rock but with hints of synth. While the synths do add some needed layers to the tracks, their prominence on the former track don't really offer much to the song and end up being somewhat overpowering. The Rietmeyer's voices, and the rhythm guitar, create enough traction that the listener has all that they need for the song to have impact. That being said, the songs still leave a great lasting impression.
If you're looking for something a little slower paced, "With Upward Eyes" and "I Am Yours" will graciously give you what you seek. These tracks feel like sincere prayers that are built on the truth of scripture. While the songs may not be overly original in content, they are arranged quite beautifully.
"Kingdom Song" is by far the standout track of the short EP. Stylistically, it tastefully juxtaposes the rest of the album without disrupting the flow. Utilizing the sweet acoustic sound of a ukulele, the Rietmeyer's voices pair quite well with this arrangement. In the future, it would be really refreshing to hear a collection of songs like this.
While Whose Are You? may not be everyone's worshipful cup of tea, its eclectic blend makes it rather unique and interesting. Musically, it's a potluck of styles that offers something likable to most listeners while lyrically is reminiscent of reflective psalms and prayers. Honestly, I'm not sure what we'll see in the future from Mud to Marble, but I'm sure it won't be like what we've experienced with this album, and there's something pretty fantastic about that.- Review date: 3/17/19, written by Ryan Barbee of Jesusfreakhideout.com
