Sonic Fuel is an up-and-coming rock band I discovered about a month ago with their self-titled long play debut album, which was released on 23 July 2021. For those who haven’t heard about the band before, Sonic Fuel has started their careers with a single; “I Will Rise“ in 2020. Since then, the band has released two more singles; “Scream“ (2020), “Karma“ (2020), and one long-play album, “Sonic Fuel” (2021). Now, please give the song a listen while reading the rest of the article.
I grew up listening to rock music, watching MTV and Vh1 back in the 90s before becoming a metalhead with my discovery of Metallica. Sonic Fuel’s self-titled debut album reminded me of those beautiful days with its overall vibe, immediately made me feel better. First of all, they have a beautiful sounding 10 songs in this album with a radio-friendly build and nostalgic vibes from the 90s. I am sure so many people out there still longing for the new music with the feeling of those years and bands like Sonic Fuel keeps the flame alive.
The album offers everything a rock music fan could possibly ask for. The band in general has influences from alternative rock, pop-rock, blues rock, classic rock, hard rock, and country rock in their origins. You instantly know that this is an American band playing American rock. Some of these songs are quite romantic and emotional where others have electrifying energy all along the way. Although this is the first official album release by Sonic Fuel, these American gentlemen are obviously experienced and advanced musicians. You can tell by listening to their song structures, instrumentation, and the outcome, that this is much more than the world expects to hear from a new band.
Furthermore, I’d like to add that Sonic Fuel album perfectly transmits the message to the listener with its raw energy. Every single song has something in common, yet has a different vibe. I listened to the full album a few times on repeat before writing my article, and I wished I wasn’t here in front of my laptop but driving a classic American car on a highway listening to this beautiful music instead.
