For the Fans

Welcome to the online home of South African Alternative Electronica band Rise. Make yourself at home. Listen to our music, meet the band and find out where you can catch us live, or buy our music. If you’ve joined us at any of our recent gigs, take a stroll through our online gallery and see what makes Rise unique.


South African based Alternative Electronic band, Rise has slowly matured into a formidable sound over the last 7 years. With their roots firmly entrenched in the alternative and indie rock foundations, their lyrics are layered and complex while the heavy integration of electronic music (such as synthesizers and rythms) ensure the sound remains approachable.

Having carved out a position for themselves on the SA music scene, their contemporary international sound has received support from UK and European radio stations, including having some of their tracks remixed by DJ Terry Lex for the European market.

Although their studio recordings are meticulous, Rise has always had an enormous live performance appeal, not the least of which was their show at the FIFA Fan Park 2010 and their vibrant gigs with the fantastic Goldfish at the Botanic Gardens.
