Johannesburg based, power trio Far From Who We Are have shared their new single and video for the track “Rise”, from their first release via German label HopePunk Records. Formed in 2015 and consisting of brothers Johan Heyns (Guitar, Vocals, Synths), Maarten Heyns (Bass), and Kyle Williams (Drums). They write, record, mix and master everything themselves in their own studio (The Laundry Room), and the result is a recording quality that is truly world-class, which is just what their songs deserve. The song has a great melodic hook, but is heavy enough for the heshers! Watch the clip right now!
Johan explains a little more about the concept of the video, “We felt that an energetic band performance approach would fit the songs energy well and allow us to keep the focus on the song itself. Visually, we aimed at expressing the songs core message (of rising above a dark place or difficult situation) – contrasting the video’s dark setting and colour-scheme with the bands lighter (“white”) presence and performance that visualises this “fight” and ultimate uprising. Also, we’re a live performance band at our core, and of course we’ve been missing playing live during this Covid crisis, so the video was also great opportunity for us to get together and perform again as band.”
