Upset share new ’76’ EP stream

Upset stream their new ep '76,' now out on Lauren records.

Los Angeles’ pop punk band Upset have shared a stream of their new EP, ’76, out now on Lauren Records. ’76 is the follow up to their debut LP, She’s Gone. In support the release of ’76’, Upset have announced a full US Spring tour with Colleen Green.

Upset is a Los Angeles band comprised of Ali Koehler, Patty Schemel, Rachel Gagliardi and Lauren Freeman. The band released their debut record, She’s Gone, in October 2013 on Don Giovanni Records.

For their new EP, ’76, Upset agreed they wanted to build on the pop foundation She’s Gone laid down. Recorded at Todd Congelliere’s Clown Sound studio in San Pedro, Upset stuck to the DIY punk ethos they are comfortable with. All songs were tracked live and in the first take or two. The addition of Lauren Freeman (of Benny the Jet Rodriguez) helps realize the pop punk nature of Koehler’s songwriting, whereas Rachel Gagliardi (of Slutever) adds chugging bass and soprano harmonies that effectually drive home the intense emotional content of Koehler’s lyrics. The camaraderie of the new lineup is palpable, and the musical relationship between Koehler and Schemel is stronger than ever. Koehler coming from a background in drumming (ex-Vivian Girls and Best Coast) and Schemel (ex-Hole) being a veteran of the era that most inspired the rest of the bands makes for a riveting musical dynamic.
