FRESH: ‘Rise Up’ – Thorisson feat. Amanda Bashmakova

Icelandic producer Thorisson releases his vibrant new single “Rise Up”.

by Christopher Smith

Saxophonist and producer Thorisson has teamed up with vocalist Amanda Bashmakova for his latest release “Rise Up”, a dancetastic electro-pop number that will bring happiness and inspiration to all.

Thorisson states that “Rise Up” addresses the issue of sexism in the music business – it is an empowerment song with a good message; rise up against gender discrimination. The song’s inspiring vocals are by Amanda Bashmakova, singer of a Southampton based band BASH!

“Rise Up”s powerful and uplifting vibe makes it the perfect song to play during a workout. It follows an every growing list of superb tracks from Thorisson since he made his debut in 2015 with “The Chase”. The 25 year old always uses ‘guest’ vocalists on each of his tracks, most recently that fell to Hedband, Iceland’s newest 80’s infused Scandi-electro-pop duo on the track “Snjókorn Falla” (“Snowflakes Fall”).
