Brit Alt-rockers SONDER plan to break from the underground with the release
of their mesmerising new single, A Wicked Place. This mouth-watering track
takes from everyone from Nirvana and Biffy Clyro, to Arcane Roots and
Basement. The single can now be accessed via all key platforms and services.
Formed in late 2016 in Tamworth, SONDER have formed an engrossing sound that
mixes the grit of Grunge, meshed with colossal guitar riffs and pop
sensibilities. Bursting onto the scene in 2017 with their debut EP, Papered
Cracks, the band soon earned a reputation for delivering highly energetic
shows; such praise saw the foursome pick up a run of shows with Fangclub,
Fizzy Blood, Sick Joy, and The Fallen State.
The band continued their climb this August with the release of the first
single taken from their forthcoming untitled EP, out January 2019. The
track, entitled Karma, was happily backed by a headline slot at Birmingham’s
O2 Academy. SONDER push on again with their new single, A Wicked Place.
Vocalist and guitarist, Kraig Fallows, talks about the track: “‘A Wicked
Place’ is the 2nd single from our upcoming new EP. It is about dealing with
depression and anxiety. It’s about trying to pretend everything is fine,
whether you’re convincing yourself or others, and struggling to deal with
the smallest things and being scared to ask for help. The track is
influenced by my own personal battles.”
