Review: Philly rockers Soraia’s single ‘I See Fire’

Single Review


Single Review: Soraia’s single “I See Fire”-Release date August 18, 2022

Philadelphia rock band Soraia has announced a October 28 release date for ‘Bloom,’ the act’s third studio album with Stevie Van Zandt’s Wicked Cool Records. On August 18th the band released the single “I See Fire”.

ROCK AT NIGHT SAYS: “I See Fire” is pure rock ‘n’ roll with its heavy riff-laden intro and the vocals in the vein of the Runaways or Pat Benatar.  Garage rock yet head banging at the same time.  The tune takes a surprising melodic turn about a minute into the song as the chorus melds into an infectious groove. I’m liking the trend of new music going back to retro roots–and “I See Fire” has elements of this. We look forward to hearing the new album Bloom.

The band will be on tour September through November. Check out the dates below.

Soraia is:

ZouZou Mansour – Lead Vocals, Tambourine

Travis Smith – Bass Guitar, Backing Vocals

Brianna Sig – Drums, Backing Vocals

Other Players:

Mike Dudolevitch – Lead and Rhythm Guitars, piano (“I Seek Fire”)
