Sunset Rumble – I Wish I Was: A Resurgence of Vintage Rock & Soul

No Soul Rock & Roll band could claim to be so without having earth shattering guitar riffs and solo’s within their songs. Sunset Rumble certainly do not disappoint with their latest debut track I Wish I Was. They have a dramatic sound, not too dissimilar from Buck Cherry minus the expletives. Their style is charismatically melodic, there’s no harsh drama, just an indulgence in the sweet acoustic sound of Rock combined with ubiquitous soul.

It’s impossible not to be moved by their music, their latest track in particular. Whether you shed a tear, or get high on the taste of illustrative euphoria their sound has definitely found a special place in my heart. Whilst they are influenced by acts such as Bob Seger, South Side Johnny & Bad Company, they take their music in their own direction and their own experiences from growing up in Holland, Michigan, US.

I Wish I was is playful, yet humbling. The talented quartet of musicians each have a myriad of experience and knowledge behind them, which all together provide a seamless sound that you can’t help but get mixed up in.
