Sonic Fuel are a rock band from Knoxville, Tennessee. Their single “I Will Rise” shows a melodic sound, one that compares favorably to acts like Switchfoot. Thunderous, soaring guitars consume from the get-go, with amiable vocals conjuring an awakening feeling — both in terms of tone and actual lyrics. The chorus at 01:03 plays with accessible exhilaration, one that will certainly appeal to fans of the radio-friendly rock niche. The shimmering guitar work approaching the three-minute mark also stands out.
Vocalist and rhythm guitarist David Hales says the following regarding the shimmering single: “When someone you love decides to end their life abruptly and leave you behind, it is nothing short of devastating. ‘I Will Rise’ is an expression of determination; a cry out to the world that the darkness someone left you writhing in will soon be a thing of the past.”
“I Will Rise” and other memorable tracks released this past June can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of June 2020’ Spotify playlist.
