When I was a teenager listening to Christian music in the late 90s, I was always disappointed in how flat the mass-marketed Christian albums felt, as if to be Christian meant that was the only thing you could be, that you could only sing about God and prayer in a way that felt completely compartmentalized from the rest of your life. With her 2018 album False Foundations, Rachel Marie makes music that exhibits a much more intersectional kind of Christianity–one that considers gender roles, contains complex theories of death, love, and relationships, and one that seeks to understand a believer’s relationship to current politics.
