Trinity Releases ‘Anthem of Love’
While performing for the fist time at the 2019 World Youth Day in Panama City, Trinity recorded their “Anthem of Love” video which is fitting for the Netherlands-based group who claim to be “creating heavily parties in and outside the church.” Organized by the Catholic Church, the event reportedly drew 600,000 young people, many featured in the video which was recorded last January.
“I strongly believe that this world needs more people who’re willing to be bridges; persons who have learned to let go and embrace something new at the same time,” says Trinity’s Elbert Smelt (lead vocals, flutes, saxophone).
The new single’s “vibe, rhythm and Spanish-lyrics” takes the band back to their days growing up in South America.
“We’ve danced to this song with people from all over the globe at many festivals. One of the most memorable times is definitely at World Youth Day in Panama,” says Smelt. “Playing for so many believers from all over the world made us realize how we can only experience God’s love in unity. Because every person reflects a different aspect of God’s love. Just like sunlight is composed of many rays of colors: together all these colors become light.”
Formed by three Dutch brothers raised as missionary kids in Lima, Peru, Elbert, Johan (acoustic guitars) and Niek Smelt (Drums, percussion), along with Dutch-raised Bert Bos (bass), Trinity is a Worldbeat band that fuses South American and Irish folk with African beats and pop grooves to create a unique, acoustic music experience.
“Anthem Of Love” is the third single from the band’s album, The In Between, slated to release July 12 in North America from Fuel Music. The new single follows Trinity’s widely acclaimed “Wherever We Go” and “Alive Again” tracks, the latter song being played live by the band in radio studios across America last summer for audiences based in New York City to Washington, DC to Los Angeles.
“We’re proud to call ourselves craftsmen of heavenly parties, and we’re experts at making people’s feet move,” says Niek. “Not with huge beats and technology, but with a unique acoustic approach that will disarm and free any crowd.”
