Sonic Fuel has returned with their brand new track, “Karma.” Unlike their song, “I Will Rise,” which was an inspirational cry out of resilience through painful loss, “Karma” is a heavy and heartfelt track from the perspective of an outsider.
With angst-ridden lyrics penned about abuse such as, “It’s not what you say, it’s what you do / You’re the one who broke the golden rule,” “You got what you want and you thought we’d never know,” and “You tear everybody down / You’re conflict all around / Karmas gonna bite you,” listeners can sense the frustration and pain in each and every word. It’s almost as if the person Sonic Fuel is talking about is a thief, who is mentally and/or physically taking something from them without a single regret.
“This particular song is a raw, energetic freight train from start to finish,” says songwriter/vocalist/guitarist, David Hales. “It will resonate with those who have been abused by people in positions of authority with money and/or power. We make no apologies to anyone it may offend.”
Listening to this, we have the urge to just stand up and scream every lyric, sort of like how we used to sing “Scars” by Papa Roach at the top of our lungs back in 2004.
There’s really nothing better than a good song to release painful emotions.
By the way, the header photo shows the band with “Little Donnie,” who is starring in the upcoming video for “Karma.” The music video for that will be coming out soon!
