Because of the way Gedalya’s captivated vocals flow with the exquisite ambiance, the song sounds both fresh and sentimental. At its heart, “The Thunder” is an anthem. Its subject is fear and bravery. However, Gedalya distinguishes between the two in this work. He says, He says, “Bravery is when we act despite our fear. We’re all afraid of something, and that’s actually a good thing! Fear can keep you from danger, and fear can straighten out your life when it’s headed in the wrong direction.” The lyrics also discuss how vulnerable some of us are and so, we should treat those amidst us with compassion.

“The Thunder,” produced by Craig Levy, is a three-and-a-half-minute-and-37-second song with a dreamy yet grounded vibe. Geldalya’s performance is excellent, and the way his vocals are portrayed is truly remarkable. “The Thunder” has a firm hold on us while also sounding quite enticing.

Notable Lyrics
One day if you’re shaken, you’ll begin to see when you’re reminded that you’re delicate and weak
The voice from one who has the fear will start to speak
Did you ever wonder… what’s the purpose of the thunder?
