Dec-17-17 05:30 PM Upright Man with Caverns
New York City-based rock band Upright Man is Aidan Dolan (guitar/vocals), Nick Katz (bass/vocals) and Max Yassky (drums/percussion/background vocals).Upright Man is currently putting the finishing touches on their dynamic self-titled debut due out August 18th. The forthcoming albums ten tracks were produced by Marc Copely (Roseanne Cash, B.B. King, Billy Squire) and Zev Katz (Jeff Beck, Hall & Oates, Aretha Franklin) and engineered by Bruce Sugar (Ringo Starr, Joe Walsh) at Avatar Studios and Sear Sound in NYC and at Blackbird Studios in Nashville. Upright Man has crafted an exciting, ambitious, formidable album that immediately captivates and holds tight. The magnetic songs boast the hulking riffs and spacey twists of the eponymous Upright Man while the bombastic tribal beats of Animals and Checked Out throw you into a hypnotic frenzy. Three Easy Pieces mesmerizes with propulsive piano-driven swagger, Agorognostic paints a lush soundscape via sharp lyrics and vibrant instrumentation and Designer Mind and Say What You Mean offer sultry distortion-drenched stomps.The band met while studying classical music composition at New York University where they played together on various projects ranging from classical ensembles to rock bands. Their strong writing chemistry spurred the formation of Upright Man. Combining elements of alternative, psychedelic, roots rock and classic rock with complex harmonies and time signatures, Upright Man seamlessly intertwines influences like Pink Floyd, Radiohead, Crowded House, Little Feat, the Beatles, Led Zeppelin and XTC into a unique sound all their own. Aidan explains, Our different musical backgrounds make for an explosive chemical reaction that creates something none of us would have alone. We have a compulsion to write songs together and do so constantly, adds Nick. We just want to write great songs, play genuine music and share it with the world, says Max.
