Irish worship band We Are Messengers recently released their new EP, entitled Honest, which features the track “Maybe It’s Ok.”
“Maybe It’s Ok” is about the pervasive problem of shame and the emotional crises accompanying it, crises that frequently result in suicide. The message of “Maybe It’s Ok” aids individuals to break away from their feelings of helplessness, humiliation, and insignificance.
Formed in 2015, We Are Messengers comprises Darren Mulligan (lead vocals), Heidi Mulligan (vocals), Kyle Williams (guitar), Drew Kerxton (drums), and Drake Kennedy (bass). The band released their eponymous album in 2016. Prior to creating We Are Messengers, Darren and Heidi Mulligan were with The Remission Flow.
The combination of gorgeous music and relevant lyrics provides the song with compelling influence, both intimate and spiritually effective.
“Maybe It’s Ok” opens on elegant sheens of color flowing into scrumptious savors of alt-pop atop a measured potent rhythm full of smooth prismatic hues. Mulligan’s voice, full of frissons of empathetic timbres, fills the lyrics with compassion.
“If I didn’t know what it hurt like to be broken / Then how would I know what it feels like to be whole / If I didn’t know what it cuts like to be rejected / Then I wouldn’t know the joy of coming home / Maybe it’s ok if I’m not ok / Cause the one who holds the world is holding onto me / Maybe it’s alright if I’m not alright / Cause the one who holds the stars is holding my whole life.”
It’s the familiarity of the lyrics of “Maybe It’s Ok” that prove so persuasive, relaying a message enveloped in a field of suppressed yet vital energy.
“Maybe It’s Ok” blends vibrant layers of harmonics with the tangible power of words into a concoction capable of changing lives.
