FUTURE RADIO Release New Single ‘Rise’

Share This:

Future Radio‘s latest single, Rise, is their third release of 2023. This electro-tinged, pop-rock anthem serves as a powerful anti-bullying message, specifically crafted for the Rise Theatre Production aimed at high schools across South Africa. The song not only showcases the band’s relevance to current issues but also their versatility in exploring diverse musical genres.

Musically, the song starts with a staccato bass line and soft vocals, gradually building up with an energetic guitar and drums-driven chorus. The bridge introduces a punk-inspired element, symbolising strength in the face of adversity, motivating listeners to transcend challenges and emerge stronger. Through its empowering lyrics that emphasise understanding, acceptance, and unity, Rise highlights the interconnectedness of humanity.

Since the inception of Future Radio, our desire has always been to give back and inspire,” shares Johnny, the frontman and songwriter of the band. “It was through a conversation with an old university friend, who shared his son’s passion against bullying, that the seed for change was planted. The idea for Rise was born out of this meaningful exchange.

The Rise Theatre Production stands as a unique and powerful theatrical fusion, intertwining animation and rock music to ignite a fire within our youth, encouraging them to uplift one another and take a resolute stand against bullying. As we embarked on this journey, we recognized the need for a song to conclude the production, and that’s how Rise came to life. It serves as the poignant finale, leaving a lasting impact on our audience, inspiring them to rise above the darkness and embrace a future of unity and empowerment.”
