UK seven-piece band The Upside has released the second single of their debut album entitled Outstanding In Our Field. Entitled “Trust Issues”, it has just been released on June 1.
Usually, Glenn Bruinewoud takes care of the vocals but for “Trust Issues”, he has handed the reins to Daniel Mason from Newcastle trio Fossway. Mason didn’t seem to encounter any problem bringing the edge to the track and he has drawn out the hint of darkness the song possesses.
With lines such as “My goddess of grotesque, the song expresses some real contempt for the protagonist’s intended object. Furthermore, we can realize that The Upside’s songs aren’t all about fun and games, but that the band has a dark side too.
The Upside is a seven-piece band from Newcastle-Upon Tyne, UK. The members were brought together by Glenn Bruinewoud – taking care of the trumpet and vocals – but they are all coming from diverse backgrounds including Classical, Pop, Jazz, Big Band and Progressive Rock.
Together they want to play songs designed to bring a powerful dose of positivity to their audience. Their debut album Outstanding In Our Field was created during the lockdown and it is showcasing a rocket-fueled horn section with a great sense of humor.
This remote creation has proven that the lockdown situation wasn’t a barrier to their creativity but it also prepared the artists for a near future: a world of gigs, tours as well as a more positive outlook. Their goal is to be ready when both studio and music venues will be able to reopen. Outstanding In Our Field was released on May 1.
