Indie-Pop sensation UPSAHL has every right to celebrate. Last year, she released her first single, “Can You Hear Me Now,” a bouncy, rhythmic, and poignant track that set the internet positively abuzz. UPSAHL went on to release “Kiss Me Now,” which seamlessly blends elements of Indie Rock, Pop, and Electronica. Both singles topped the Hype Machine chart and were praised by the likes of Nylon and Indie Shuffle, and included in coveted playlists on Spotify and Apple Music.
Now, UPSAHL is gearing up for the release of her new single, “The Other Team,” a cheeky, autobiographical track that she wrote about falling in love with her male gay best friend.
Given the maturity in her craft, it’s nearly impossible to believe that Taylor Upsahl, recently tossed her mortarboard in the air as a high school graduate. Born into a musical family, UPSAHL started playing guitar and piano at 5. By the time she was 14, UPSAHL had written/released an EP, which gained recognition throughout the Phoenix music scene. Influenced by artists like The Shins, Lorde and Beyonce, UPSAHL has an undeniable ability to write songs that permeate your psyche, forcing you to tap into your deepest emotions.
