about

The brainchild of singer-songwriter Radhika Rathinasab​apathy, Resonance is a music project that specialises in bringing multiple genres together under one voice. As comfortable with funk and rock as with pop and calypso, Resonance is difficult to pigeonhole and all the better for it.

‘Reverie’ is a dreamy samba/calypso number inspired by a flight over the Andes mountains. Written as a simultaneous love letter to the scenery and its ability to inspire the artist within, it’s a track packed with lyrical subtlety offset by a party vibe and solid guitar soloing. From the ‘molten eyes’ (the mountain lakes) to the ‘suspended space between sea and sky’ (the rocky plains), it’s a song that takes you on a visual journey across the peaks.

Listed last year as a nominee for MTV’s Brand New Unsigned Competition, Resonance is a project with genuine pedigree. The new tracks, recorded by Dave Moore (who works on the sound team for X Factor/BGT and also worked on Bond film Skyfall) and mastered by John Davis (Led Zeppelin, U2, Lana Del Rey, Paloma Faith), mark out their ambitions to become one of the premier new bands of 2014 – a far cry from the career as a lawyer that Radhika left behind to set the whole thing up.

It is this change of scenery which informed the band’s name. Resonance is ‘what happens when something moves at its natural frequency’, something Radhika feels she is now able to do having left her legal career behind to focus on writing and performing.

Music was always going to come calling for Radhika, and so it proved. And it’s paying off too – the steadily growing online fanbase are coming from far and wide, from the UK, France, India, Singapore and Indonesia.

lyrics

in those molten eyes
flying toward that earthly plain
up in suspended space between sea and sky
running my eyes through sulphurous blue
that's where i found you
that's where i found you

too much to say
and you said say nothing at all
and like a lover approach me
i will give you song

stay right there now
let your beloved free you
the tongue of ages speaks your song
that's where i found you
where i found you

too much to say
and you said say nothing at all
and like a lover approach me
i will give you song

about

RESONANCE Los Angeles, California

“Singer, lead guitarist, composer and lyricist Radhika has a melodious voice even when she’s just speaking. It’s clear and refreshing as a cool drink, but with a flammable ether. It’s the voice of someone who comforted your childhood self with a lullaby, then that of a fuse right before it blows.”
– The San Francisco Chronicle
