“Gasoline” is the new single from Denver-based alternative rock band Vermillion Road, released today.
This was my first time listening to the band, and I liked what I heard. “Gasoline” is an upbeat track about love, and a willingness to do whatever it takes to be near this girl. The lyrics call her “my fuel, my fire, my gasoline”–the thing that keeps him going. I find this a sweet sentiment and a well-used metaphor.
Vermillion Road has a solid synth-rock sound going on with “Gasoline.” The song is a summer jam, bringing to mind summer drives with the windows down, the warm air blowing your hair around. My head was bopping along to the rocking drumbeat, and the tune is definitely stuck in my head now.
What really stands out is the vocals. Vocalist Will Robinson has talent. His smooth voice soars over the instruments, and passion is fused into the words he sings.
I enjoyed listening to this song, and look forward to hearing the band’s upcoming EP. Vermillion Road has some serious talent, so I highly advise checking them out.
