One Peaceful Day

OUR STORY

SONIC formed in January of 2017. Since then, it has been a widely recognized band in the Bogotá rock scene, lauded for its diverse membership, stage presence, and song composition. It was one of a select group of local bands to participate in the 2017 Hard Rock Rising competition, and advanced to the finals of the prestigious 2018 Monsters of Rock competition hosted by Subterranica, after having made it to the semi-finals the previous year. The band was also selected to participate in the 2018 Bogotá Music Market business conference as a national act.

Sonic songs try to represent the entire panorama of rock music, what they refer to as New Vintage Alternative, incorporating retro sounds of the rock eras of the 70s, 80s, and 90s with the modern sounds of today. On any Sonic disc, or at any Sonic show, you will likely hear hard-driving songs, alt-indie type tunes, and some keyboard soaked alt-pop numbers. Another Sonic trademark are big, enveloping background vocals. You'll be tempted to say Sonic sounds like someone, but never quite be able to put your finger on exactly who.

In October of 2018, the band released its debut album "One Peaceful Day". All songs on the album One Peaceful Day were written by Thomas Fay, produced by Luis Ernesto Walteros and SilverFox, and recorded at Estudio LeFlat in Bogotá, Colombia. The album was mastered by Grammy nominated engineer Carlos Silva at C1 Mastering. The band also has received invaluable consultation from two-time Grammy nominated artist/producer Carlos Villalobos of Alistar Records.

The band has set it sights on an ambitious 2019. It recorded a cover of the 1980's pop-rock classic "Life In A Northern Town" and a new alt-pop original "Summer Magic" , both produced by Pedro Rovetto of the Colombian rock band Superlitio at Arbol Naranja Studios in Bogota. They are also currently recording two additional songs, the rocker "Asphyxiate" (to be released the end of May), and an acoustic ballad "Next To Nothing" (to be released in June). All told, Sonic plans to release between 8 to 10 new songs. The band is also planning a national tour in 2019, with hopes to make its first tour outside of Colombia in 2020.
