Sonic Fuel’s “Karma” Video Employs Rock Tropes to Perfection

A music video opens with a zealous young man rocking out. Of course, his mom barges him, says the music is of Satan, and tells him he can’t rock no more. This isn’t a fresh idea, but it’s a well worn trope for a reason. When it’s done well, it works. And on Sonic Fuel’s “Karma” music video, it certainly works.

“Karma” is a fun straight-ahead rock tune in the vein of modern rockers like Foo Fighters or Collective Soul. This vibe, the kid in the video, and the solid camera work make the video a real blast. Lead man David Hales has an extremely strong rock vocal style and the band plays a tight rock tune behind him. It’s a total package that harkens back to a time where music videos mattered and were part of our everyday life.

Justin has been running websites since his first Geocities site in 1994, but only did he ever start covering anything of substance years later. After he stopped regularly running local concerts in Northern NJ and the greater Philly area, he knew he needed to step up his writing game if he expected to continue to get free music to listen to. He writes regularly here and at Cinapse, as well as contributing to a few other sites on occasion. He likes music, film, the Philadelphia Eagles, the 76ers, talking about Criminal Justice, reading Intelligence Report, and his family... not in that order. His beautiful wife is far more talented than he is and his kids far more adorable... and crazy.
