UP LATE ANNOUNCES SOPHOMORE EP 'TOTAL FUCKING DARKNESS!' + DROPS NEW TRACK

Watch our interview with Up Late below!


Resident genre-defying act, Up Late has treated us with the announcement of his sophomore EP, TOTAL FUCKING DARKNESS!. The announcement is accompanied by a new taste of the EP, HEARTSICK, which brings the musicians signature sonic fusion of rap, hip hop, and hardcore.


Speaking of the track, the musician shares: "HEARTSICK is about falling in love while being tied to your dreams and how, unfortunately, it seldom works out for both people. Being a creative normally pushes you to deal with problems or decisions with the emotional part of your brain, something that I know I’ve dealt with throughout my teens and early twenties. You can be rash, unpredictable and in-directly (or directly) destructive to yourself and your loved ones. But most of the time, when you become aware of those traits in yourself, it’ll be too late."



“I was excited for anything that reverberated in my eardrums, no matter how different or weird that sound was, but never had the agency to follow it for myself,” he shares. “TFD! is my way of taking back that agency to be whoever I want musically, and I wrote it believing that it could become a gateway for someone else to discover different sounds, cultures and genres too.” he adds of the EP


Up Late launched early last year by competing in Triple J’s DIY Supergroup competition. Not long after, Up Late shot up the Unearthed charts with their debut single Friends. Taking influence from emo, rock, pop, rap and heavy sonic sounds, the artist navigates the terrain of fusing these differing sounds together. Through fusing Pasalic’s emo-punk and trap backgrounds together, Up Late is filling the gap within the Australian music industry where no other artist seems to be crossing these two genres.
