Topology releases concept album, We Will Rise reflecting upon the need for resilience, collective recovery and healing amidst world existential threats.
Aria-nominated and internationally regarded quintet Topology, established leaders of musical creativity in Australia, operating successfully out of Brisbane for over two decades, release their 16th album We Will Rise. The 10-track concept EP, especially curated from back catalogue signature compositions, reflects Topology artists' contemporary concerns. We Will Rise has thematic links to the existential threat of climate disruption and the need for strength, hope, fortitude and resilience in order for recovery and collective healing to commence on the back of traumatic natural events and a global viral pandemic.
