Feeling a bit camera shy


With their emotive lyrics, harmonic melodies and epic on stage resonance, ‘The Rising’ are a band with a new vision of alternative rock music. Their sound is intertwined with rustic yet sensual vocals adding something different in a musical market of same old, same old...

Based in Devon, the band are making waves in the ambient alternative rock scene. Having played to packed venues around the region, their original sound has received rave reviews from both fans and venues. Steve Strange (Singer, ‘Visage’) commented on their ‘individual’ but ‘expansive’ sound whilst the Plymouth Evening Herald released an insert in their music guide highlighting their ‘classic melodic undertones’.

Creatively, the members use a writing method that encompasses what the band stand for. Ranging from classical to rock, the member’s individual musical tastes are blended together to become a collective initiative. Obvious influences would include U2, Stereophonics mixed with a little bit of Kings of Leon, writing styles vary from The Beatles to Coldplay.

It seems that only good times lay ahead for a band with such competence at such an early stage in their musical careers.
