“UPSAHL is having a career-defining year straight out of a dream”
– ALT PRESS
Critically acclaimed trailblazer UPSAHL channels the energy of a woman scorned with her latest fiery single “Lunatic,” out today. The song, which is a thumping pop driven anthem that screams bad b*tch energy, is a highlight off her upcoming debut album coming soon.
On the release, UPSAHL shared, “The day I wrote Lunatic, I was having such a shit day that I almost didn’t show up to the studio… I ended up going in pajamas, no makeup, angry as fuck at the world. I walked into the studio and started venting about the whole situation to Jonny and Will (co-writers), and I just kind of ended up going into the vocal booth and screaming into the mic. I feel like people are so scared of being the “crazy ex,” but sometimes you kind of just want to go fucking crazy. This song is owning that.”
In addition to UPSAHL’s full run of fall dates across the U.S. opening for Olivia O’Brien, this week, UPSAHL sold out her first-ever headline show debut at the Courtyard Theatre in London on October 12th.
In just a few short years, UPSAHL has carved out a niche in the songwriting world as she has lent her pen to numerous hits spanning various genres such as Dua Lipa’s GRAMMY Award-winning “Good in Bed,” Madison Beer’s fiery single “BOYSHIT,” and “Happy Endings” with Mike Shinoda and iann dior which went Top 10 at Alt Radio. Most recently, UPSAHL collaborated with Anne-Marie and Little Mix and co-wrote “Kiss My (Uh Oh)” a current Top 10 single in the UK. In addition, UPSAHL covered Dominic Fike’s “3 Nights” for Amazon’s coveted Original series that’s exclusively featured on Amazon Music.
UK TOUR DATES

Early in her career, UPSAHL released songs which gained much-deserved recognition throughout the Phoenix music scene. As a graduate of the Arizona School for the Arts, she went on to ignite a groundswell of fan adoration and tastemaker praise by way of numerous indie alternative gems. “Can You Hear Me Now” achieved a palpable viral buzz followed by the widely praised single “Drugs”, which has been used in nearly 2,000,000 TikTok videos, reaching #6 on the TikTok Viral Chart and #1 Sound on the TikTok Trends Chart. It has also been featured in clips posted by the likes of James Charles, Charly Jordan, Alex French, Jason Derulo, and more. “Drugs” led to a momentous year for the “up-and-coming indie-pop queen”—according to Alternative Press.
2019 saw UPSAHL take the stage at Lollapalooza and support acts including PVRIS, Joywave, BROODS, and Young the Giant. Additionally, YouTube claimed UPSAHL as their ‘Artist on the Rise,’ Nylon proclaimed, “She’s on her rock star ish,” and NME declared she “has a knack for fusing fizzy hooks with her drawling delivery of pithy lyrics. The result – her vibrant alt-pop bops.”
2020 was a standout year for UPSAHL, releasing her second EP Young Life Crisis, which Billboard crowned as one of the top 25 pop albums of 2020. Earlier in the year, UPSAHL undertook her first co-write on “Good in Bed” for Dua Lipa’s GRAMMY Award winning blockbuster, Future Nostalgia, and recently lent her pen to Madison Beer on her fiery single “BOYSHIT,” as well as Mike Shinoda’s upbeat anthem “Happy Endings,” which features her and iann dior. Complete with throwback alternative vibes and her signature unfiltered lyricism, UPSAHL’s new singles “Douchebag” and “Melatonin” are out now, off of her highly anticipated full-length debut album due out in October 2021.
