Upset – “Linus” (Stereogum Premiere)
Upset will tour Australia and New Zealand with White Lung next month. To mark the occasion, the Ali Koehler/Patty Schemel/Jennifer Prince triad (plus fourth member Rachel Gagliardi, who joined Upset since the release of last year’s debut She’s Gone) has unleashed another melodic guitar outburst powered by the twin engines of pop-punk and ’90s alt-rock. It’s called “Linus,” and it suggests this band has lots more expert songcraft and infectious energy where She’s Gone came from. Listen below.
