A stellar debut from American band, Sonic Maven. “Look At Me Now” is a guitar-driven Rock track with Grunge elements that stands for all the dreamers, the underdogs, and the relentless.
What’s going on ladies and gentlemen, welcome back! It’s your boy MadZen and today we will prepare for Sonic Maven’s very first release, ever! A track that not only shines through its emotive elements but will also delight listeners with great guitar tones and a solid drum/bass foundation. Let’s get to it!
Formed in 2022, Sonic Maven set out to create a sound of their own. Inspired by bands like The Black Keys, Arctic Monkeys, The White Stripes, and Royal Blood, these Colorado Springs musicians deliver a clear, powerful & defined sound, even with all the overdrives and crunchiness of the guitars.
Many people see their dreams quashed by naysayers in life, whatever their aspirations might be! For this reason, it is amazing to see artists looking to offer some comfort and inspiration through their songs. This is definitely the case with “Look At Me Now” by Sonic Maven.
“Look At Me Now” is their first single release, inspired by those who never quit, and keep going despite being discouraged by family, friends, or society. An ode of no surrender, the battle fought from inside. More specifically, it was inspired by the many kids who have a rock and roll dream, but find out that living it is way harder than they thought. Nevertheless, their fire and spirit push on.
You will listen to a slow but decisive drum beat, with a solid bass as the foundation. Vocals pierce through the mix with inspiring lyrics, and guitar riffs with an amazing crunchy sound wail free & loud, like they used to be a few decades ago. It is a track all about following dreams and believing in yourself, never giving up until one day you can look all those naysayers in the face and say “Look At Me Now”. So,
At about 2 minutes and 11 seconds, there is also a little homage to Nirvana, with a guitar melody in the style of “Come As You Are” – another intelligent songwriting nod at the idea of being yourself and don’t worry too much about what other people think.
