Resistance is futile

Resistance is futile when it comes to these rock n roll romantics. Just know that The Sweet Resistance are set to redefine South African music, blending epic alt-rock with compelling hints of electro-pop to craft melodic, arena worthy anthems. Their debut, Where There Is Hope, overflows with towering guitar hooks, driving percussion, shimmering synths and tender song writing. This brew would suffice for most bands, but The Sweet Resistance also come armed with the powerful voice of lead singer Tash. Her impassioned delivery lights the way through the dramatic song terrain and she will undoubtedly draw you in. Her rare and masterful guitar hooks combined with her intentional story telling is altogether extraordinary.

Live, the band promise to offer a sonic passage to a landscape of hope, determination, grace and inspiration. The songs are rhythmic, melodic anthems, plumbing the depths of life, love, opportunity and release.

Since TSR’s launch, their debut single FEEL hit the number 1 spot on the 5FM Indie Chart and spent over 3 months on the SA Top 30. TSR were included in the stellar SA band line up that supported the long-awaited PIXIES Tour of SA. Their 2nd single Captivated held the No1 spot on 5FM’s Top 30 Chart for 2 consecutive weeks.

The Sweet Resistance were nominated for a 2017 - SAMA award for BEST ROCK ALBUM
