With rock, metal, and grunge influences, Des Rocs never disappoints. The New York City native released “I Am The Lightning,” the third and final single teasing Des Rocs’ sophomore album Dream Machine, which dropped August 25 via Sumerian Records. The song is brimming with declarations of power in an addictively catchy track.
‘I Am The Lightning’ was born from a desire to perform music that is both bone-shattering & instilled with a deeper message. I live on tour driving from one city to another, and I’ve come to view the journey of life as one long road trip – a series of winding roads connected by important events. ‘I Am The Lightning’ is the soundtrack to this chaotic journey down the highway of life.
~ Danny Rocco (Des Rocs)
Real name Danny Rocco’s classic “bedroom arena rock” style shines through on “I Am The Lightning.” Passionate electric guitar makes for a solid intro to this anthemic single. Des Rocs’ bold vocals command listeners’ attention to edgy lyrics, generating undeniable rock energy that courses through the track.
Temptation of a siren
Spinning gold from the rust
I’ll rip the thorn right out my side
And carve your name into the sun
~ “I Am The Lightning”
