Following widespread rock scene support for their recent single Crawl, Toronto hard rock band Uforia return today with another brand-new song. Once again produced by Finger Eleven’s Steve Molella, Say What You Want is a song about struggling to communicate that fully showcases Uforia’s powerful, polished command of hard rock riffs and angsty, anthemic melodies.
“Communication is an essential ingredient to success,” says Michael Ursini (composer/lyricist) on the new song. “It’s incredibly frustrating to spend time with a friend that is unhappy and unwilling to talk about it. It’s so important to talk to the people around you about life. It gives you a perspective that’s not your own.” Musically, the song was born from a guitar riff that Daniel Sallj (co-composer) had brought to Michael. A signature “Salij riff”. Further collaboration with Steve Molella (co-writer/producer) brought the song to its completed form.
What began as a solo project for Michael Ursini has morphed into Uforia, a talented four-piece hard rock band that has released three EPs since 2012. The band has won a number of plaudits including being crowned winners of both Hard Rock’s Rising Canada competition and Jack Daniel’s Support-ing Actcontest, and received Mississauga Music awards for “Best Rock Artist” (2017) & Song of the Year (2018). Their single Fight or Flight is heard regularly at Canadian sports stadiums, including the Toronto Blue Jays baseball and the Toronto Maple Leafs and Ottawa Senators ice hockey games. The song also soundtracks the NFL, being played on the Buffalo Bills pre-game playlist.
