ritically acclaimed trailblazer UPSAHL channels the energy of a woman scorned with her latest music video for fiery single “Lunatic.” The song, which is a thumping pop driven anthem that screams bad b*tch energy, is a highlight off her upcoming debut album Lady Jesus coming October 8th via Arista Records. The exhilarating video, directed by George Gallardo, sees a bloody vengeful UPSAHL go full on psycho as she reenacts the iconic Hitchcock scene. UPSAHL channels her usual don’t f*** with me attitude as the video follows her at a church confessing her sins. Of the video, UPSAHL shared “Lunatic is all about playing a character, so for the video, we wanted to amplify this character. George Gallardo, who directed it, had this fire idea of recreating the shower murder scene from the movie Psycho. Having the majority of the music video take place in a church/confession booth basically makes the whole context of the song sound like a confession. Lunatic is really the turning point on my album, in which we get closer and closer to Lady Jesus, so the music video taking place in a church feels like the birth of Lady Jesus and the person I’ve become while making this album.”

In celebration of the rising star’s highly anticipated debut album, Lady Jesus, UPSAHL will be hosting a live performance and event at the oldest church in Los Angeles, Pico Union Project at 9pm PT on October 7th.

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.
