The last time we heard from all-female melodic punk outfit Upset, they'd just released their debut album She's Gone. Now the Los Angeles four-piece is back with their latest offering "Glass Ceiling," the first single from their upcoming EP '76. Walls of tasty, distorted guitars blend with frontwoman Ali Koehler as she sings about a one-sided relationship.
"The words to Glass Ceiling came stream of consciousness before I realized what they meant. I'm pretty sure I'm talking about wanting to help someone but realizing they're just bringing me down and that I gotta let them go to save myself," Koehler told the FADER in an email. "A lot of times I put the needs of others before my own as a way of distracting myself from my own flaws. This song is equal parts pointing the finger and and looking myself in the mirror." Stream "Glass Ceiling" below and look out for '76, out March 31 on Lauren Records.
