Straight Up with The Upsidedown
In the current environment, it’s occasionally difficult to know just where we are and where we’re heading. The Upsidedown can help with that. this fine group from Portland, Oregon, has just released this video for “Bumpersticker,” which speaks directly to the world surrounding us.
The group have been signed to North Carolina’s Divorce Money Records. Long ago, in the land of live music, The Upsidedown have supported such acts as The Jesus and Mary Chain, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Ravonettes, Psychedelic Furs, and The Dears and were lucky enough to play The Black Angels first two Levitation Austin Pysch Fests, along with several appearances at SXSW. Portland icons The Dandy Warhols took The Upsidedown out on tour as their main support for their 2015 Australia tour. Over the past 17 years, the band has been making a name for itself.
In the studio, the band has made complete, fully-engaged records, truly eclectic and versatile, and their music has been featured on television shows: Ray Donovan, Sons of Anarchy, and HBO’s True Blood.
This new song “Bumpersticker” is at once a link to great ’70s rock music and to fresh, innovative indie pop and rock of our new decade as well. The changes back and forth from beautiful pop acoustic music to anthemic rock tones is delightful. The lyrics are straight from bumpers everywhere! The song comes from the band’s debut album Trust Electricity (2004), which is being released through Divorce Money Records on double silver vinyl, which you can preorder!
