“New York City’s Upright Man’s self-described hi-fi rock digs deep into the crevices between classic rock, progressive rock, and grunge. ‘Hifidelic’ takes listeners on a wild ride…Cracking drums, gut-warming bass and lyrics that capture the short walk between cynicism and optimism, “Hifidelic” imagines a more sedate but no less irate iteration of the Jam, the alley walk between the adolescent hijinks of the Replacements, and the refined pop of latter-day Soul Asylum. The single is a cracking good state of the union that reveals multiple layers upon repeated listens.”- Popmatters


NYC-based alt-rock trio Upright Man is unveiling a new single off their forthcoming EP, due out in 2020. The track and video for the single “Hifidelic” premiered this week on Popmatters and is now streaming here:

The band tells PopMatters, “Hifidelic is an anthem for the modern world. We can’t control all the craziness around us, but we can say fuck it and have a good time. Sometimes chaos is beautiful.”

Watch for a new EP to be released in 2020.

Upright Man has turned their honed musicianship and love of psychedelia into a pristine rock experience. Their self-titled genre, “Hifi-rock,” draws from a deep appreciation of classic rock, prog rock, and the grunge of the 90’s. Their sophomore release, ‘Hifidelic’ invites listeners into a soundscape populated with vivid grooves, mountainous riffs, and poignant lyrics all deftly arranged.

The band was recently voted The Deli’s ‘Artist Of The Month’ and has performed regularly at many of New York City’s institutional rock venues including Brooklyn Bowl, Mercury Lounge, and The Cutting Room. They’ve performed on Relix Magazine’s session series, and have toured with Robert Randolph & The Family Band, NRBQ, and The Fabulous Thunderbirds. Their debut eponymous record Upright Man is available everywhere people dig music.
