Maranatha by GUIDOKST
GUIDOKST’s delightfully hypnotic track Maranatha offers up impassioned performances and poetic, catchy songwriting in the shape of soothing CHRISTIAN & GOSPEL soundscapes and sweetly meandering voices.

GUIDOKST’s new track Maranatha continues with a soulful, wandering voice, a traditional pop build-up that employs short lines and rhymes – before a longer-form part builds beautifully into the hook’s resolution.
Then there’s a swarm of voices, soulful and melodic in wonderfully energetic ways, all supported by a classic keys-led backdrop and the familiar, comfortable clap of a beat. You can visualize the scene and can’t help but feel it.
For what begins as a warm, purposeful, and gorgeously recorded piece of music and performance, Maranatha gradually but steadily rises and transforms into something altogether different — something all the more passionate, emotional, and dramatic. Those voices are incredible, easily meandering over the notes and the story, with a clear and unmistakable relationship to the words and thoughts at hand.
Of course, the basic theme of Gospel and Christian Soul music stands tall, and the style and the eventual resulting sound is definitely second to none in terms of quality, setup, and work put in by those involved. This characteristic, as well as the peaceful, consoling approach, throughout the entire song.
Every step of the way, GUIDOKST’s Maranatha is artistically and passionately crafted while remaining professionally presented. Musically remarkable regardless of genre or content, yet essentially intended to portray a deep relationship to a higher power — a belief in something more. It’s well worth a listen as the new season approaches.
