Dallas, TX based Nu-Metal Band Phoenix Rising are new to the scene, but their sound and style is already polished and put together. With their debut EP, From the Ashes, still in the works, they recently released the music video for their second single, “If I Say No,” an anthem for anyone who’s been bullied and oppressed.
“IF I SAY NO” is a song about standing for yourself when you are face to face with someone that is trying to make you feel bad for who and what you are. Everyone has experienced trying so hard to be accepted as a person, doing everything that we can to succeed, but ultimately being psychologically beat up by another person, or even ourselves when we fail! The song questions “What if I say no?” and responds “Then this all ends” as a battle cry for the listener to rise up and not take it anymore.”
