RELEASES OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO FOR BUZZ TRACK
FEATURED ON SPOTIFY’S ‘FRESH FINDS’ AND ‘INDIE POP’ PLAYLISTS
“Upsahl, a Phoenix native who has decamped to L.A. now that she’s graduated high school, collaborated with Max Frost on the single, an irrepressibly catchy slice of old-meets-new school pop showcasing her nimble, youthful vocals.”
“Perhaps more interesting than the perfect sound is that Upsahl only just graduated high school.”
“Her rich, radio-ready vocal belies her 18 years of age, whilst her knack for a catchy, summery chorus is immediately evident.”
THE LINE OF BEST FIT
“18-year-old artist Upsahl shows off her vocal range in this upbeat, catchy tune about refusing to settle.”
“With finger-clicking, effortless vocals and a breezy sound this super-catchy track will be at home on your summer playlist.”
“Heavily inspired by the likes of Feist and Regina Spektor, there’s a real sleekness to the composition here.”
CRACK IN THE ROAD
(NEW YORK, NEW YORK) – Last month, 18-year-old rising pop phenom, Upsahl released “Can You Hear Me Now”, produced by Max Frost, to critical acclaim. It’s no surprise that Nylon called it “a girl-power anthem you’ll want to play on repeat all summer long.”
For those of you who’ve blown out your ear buds listening to “Can You Hear Me Now,” you’re in luck. This week, Upsahl has released the official music video for the track, and it perfectly captures her irresistibly quirky style. The video was directed by Matty Steinkamp of Sundawg Media.
“’Can You Hear Me Now’ is a message to someone on the other end of a failing relationship,” shares Upsahl. “The video serves the same purpose, but in a visual form. In the video, we’re dancing, making weird faces and having a great time. Ultimately, I hope it helps turn a dark situation – like a failing relationship – into an empowering experience, during which a person realizes that they should be treated like the badass they are.”
Born into a musical family and raised in Phoenix, Upsahl started playing both guitar and piano at the age of five. By the time she was 14, she’d written and released a self-titled EP, which gained much-deserved recognition throughout the Phoenix music scene. Then, in 2015, she pieced together a band and self-produced her first full-length album, Viscerotonic. Upsahl released her third studio album, Unfamiliar Light, in February, which brilliantly showcased her stunning vocals and mesmerizing piano work. Phoenix New Times praised the album as a “breath of fresh air” and that fans will be “blown away by the quantum leap in sound and vision.”
Influenced by artists like The Shins, Spoon, Lorde and Beyonce, Upsahl has an undeniable ability to write songs that can permeate your psyche. A recent high school graduate, Upsahl will be spending most of her time in Los Angeles, working with producers and collaborators on another new album, and bringing her music to the masses.
