The latest single from Resonance HQ is out now. First written in the aftermath of the 2016 election, Resonance’s revolutionary single has since taken on the mantle of an anthem for our times. Inspired by the gathering momentum of the anti-fascist and social justice movements, #TheResistance takes on the great narrative of American Democracy. “What we’re living through is a result of specific choices made by people working to destabilize the country to their ends,” notes Resonance frontperson, Radhika. “Self-government means if we the people don’t stand up, no one else is going to do it for us.”

With a hard-hitting groove, untamed riffs, and lyrics that take to task the visible erosion of our democracy, #TheResistance is more than a hashtag—it’s a warning, and a clarion call to action. A former lawyer, Radhika finds artistic imperative in music as activist participation. In live performances, she encourages the audience to stand and sing the chorus together. More than anything, it’s this expression of collective action that Resonance wants to convey to their listeners, wherever they are.

Originally from London, Resonance moved to San Francisco in 2014, and got involved both with the indie music scene and, in 2016, with local political organizing. Blurring the artificial boundaries between artist communities, Resonance also began bringing its music to the masses in non-traditional spaces, namely storefront theatre spaces and Fringe Festivals. Resonance’s 2019 show at the San Francisco Fringe Festival won praise from the San Francisco Chronicle, with theater critic Lily Janiak calling the concert “ethereal, yet barbed”. Resonance’s desire to communicate takes precedence over outdated notions of staying in one’s lane. The revolution is for all of us, and everyone is welcome.

TheResistance is written and produced by Radhika, engineered by Ross Petersen (Bruce Springsteen, John Mayer), mixed by Dave Moore (Skyfall, The X Factor), and mastered by John Davis (U2, Led Zeppelin) at Metropolis Studios. It is available on all of the major digital platforms, including Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play Music, Tidal, Deezer, and Bandcamp. Listen to #TheResistance and watch the music video.

The San Francisco Chronicle names the Fringe Sneak Peek a critic’s pick, with a nod to Resonance’s “ethereal, yet barbed” show in the 2019 Fringe.
