The Sunstreak - 'Once upon a lie'


Recommended Posts

It's funny that I was just noting the lack of thread-worthy modern rock bands this year when this one turns up in my ears, one day later. If you're a fan of Quietdrive meets Fallbrooke, OWN THIS! I spun the MP3s yesterday and I have a copy of this in the mail as we speak as a result (for a delicious au$10 too). I am totally in love with this disc after just the first spin and there's no doubt it'll probably slot right in at number 2 behind Monty Are I on my modern rock list this year. Totally killer from start to finish. Check them out:




Track list:


01. Once Upon A Lie

02. Great White Coma

03. Until I Met You

04. Only For Tonight

05. By The Way

06. Stay

07. Here I Go Again

08. Everyday

09. Here In My Arms

10. What Else Can I Do?

11. I'm Through

Are there seriously no takers yet? Got this on Friday and was spinning it all weekend.


I should warn that it is sickly sweet in places, especially on the ballads like 'Here in my arms' (destined to be a wedding song for the kids of today) and the lyrics are quite lovey-dovey a lot of the time... but the songs are just killer. Shamelessly commercial, there is not a hint of a weak track. The first four are probably my faves, but I love the whole thing. If you love catchy pop rock, give this a go urgently.

"Once Upon A Lie" was the only track that did anything for me. That is a good one...

    • Nice. I have absolutely no idea.  Iron Maiden / The Lord's Prayer reference... Bruce?

    • STAR is out now on bandcamp and for 24hrs only, it's free, or "name your price"! so if you want it go grab it.  As for the song it's more LeBrock Awesomeness with a killer solo from McRocklin. lebrock.bandcamp.com/track/star-feat-mcrocklin
    • From Frontiers: Frontiers Music is thrilled to announce the signing of Powell-Payne a dynamic four-piece band hailing from West Wales, United Kingdom! Formed by founding members Mark ""Penfold"" Powell (ex-drummer of Psycho Kiss) and Adam Payne (former vocalist of Airrace) in 2022, Powell-Payne's journey began with a single goal - to create a heartfelt song dedicated to their lost loved ones. Joined by their dear friends Adam Davies on guitar and Steve Leyshon on keyboards, Powell-Payne quickly realised the magic of their collaboration and decided to embark on a full album project together. Expanding their lineup to include the exceptional talents of Aydan Watkins on guitar and Alex Anderson on bass guitar, Powell-Payne is ready to rock the world with their electrifying sound!

    • These guys can be found with the silver bells and cockleshells.
    • From the KC FB page: Kingdom Come is excited to announce a 'Return to the Kingdom'   Kingdom Come will be kicking off 2024 with a new lineup, management, a new album, and a brand-new tour, starting March 15th at The Lamp Theatre in Irwin, PA. And the following night, March 16th, we will be in Lakewood, OH, at Mercury Music Lounge.  Two new band members will be joining our lineup. Veteran touring drummer Matt Muckle (Paul Gilbert, Lynch Mob) will be taking over drums for our dear recently-departed brother, James Kottak. And we're introducing the incredible Ezekiel Kaplan as our new vocalist.  We hope to see you all in March, and out on the road this year, as we 'Return to the Kingdom' to continue the legacy of Kingdom Come!  👑 https://kingdomcomerockband.com  
    • I think it's the other way around.  Still it's a very hooky album. I often thought a song doesn't necessarily have to end at 3:00 minutes. The endings are too abrupt sometimes.
