The Sweet Resistance

Agent: Natasha Seery | Email: natasha[at]

They are an alternative pop rock band out of Cape Town South Africa. Their songs are rhythmic, melodic anthems plumbing the depths of life, love & opportunity.

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. Looking at the incredible response from local media, TSR were certainly a highlight of the event, attended by over 16000 festival goers.

In 2017 they supported international act, Live during their tour to South Africa
