Kicking Sunrise : Underneath Review

kicking-sunrise-cdKicking Sunrise is a band of four musicians/songwriters from Sewell, NJ. The band found their sound and direction after a successful posting on YouTube in January 2013. Soon after, the band had an extensive fan base in the South Jersey area. As the four kept focused on their writing and performing, they were recognized and signed with an independent record label (Right Coast Music). Kicking Sunrise went to Southern California to record their debut album titled, Here’s to the Sunrise.  The band has since release multiple singles and are now presenting their latest, “Underneath.”

“Underneath” has all the elements of a hit pop tune, a catchy melody, a beat that make you wanna move, full vocal harmonies and lush full production of well-played instruments.  Clean guitar creates a cross currant against the funky bass line supported by a thumping dance beat from the drum set. The lead vocals are clear and energetic, and the vocal harmonies are in tune and resonate. The song keeps the energy moving forward and never loses its feel-good vibe. The quartet has a vibe, both in songwriting and in singing. The guitar riffs at the end of the track are a nice touch, wish more pop tunes would bring in that sound!

All the markings of super-pop, with catchy beat, danceable rhythms that stick to the bone. Hook laden chorus adorn the track as Kicking Sunrise harmonize with a zestful energy that is infectious.  “Underneath,” is a stone cold hit in the making.

Shannon Smith
A fan of music my entire life. Should that be enough, well it is for me. Who buys music, the fans. Who listens to music, the fans. Like me, there are many like-minded individuals that daily search for meaningful and new music to add to their playlist, their soundtrack of life. A life without music would Bb. Yes, I have seen that saying floating around for years, and truth is, its #truth. So, may I introduce you to Shannon Smith (me). I am the editor. A music junkie that can’t get enough music in my life. A nerd (proudly), with some mad love for technology and design. It is that desire that sparked Sound in Review. Life is busy, the reviews are meant to ultimately introduce and briefly talk about the music. We have a section called SIR Quote: this is my way of saying thank you, to the countless artists making the world a place of expression. Show yours by rating each artists album, just as we have (collectively as writers), to show your support for your favorite artist.
