Up! Way Up!

Alternative rock band in San Luis Obispo, California

About

If you had a DeLorean, a working Flux Capacitor, and enough plutonium, you would be able to go back to the year 2013 AD, where Will Sutton, Ryan Corvese and Colin Webster met in the dorms of Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo. A potent mix was in the making to say the least; Will was fresh off work with a ska band, Colin had flown in from the northern regions of the hemisphere after recording an album with a metal project, and Ryan still thought it was 1967 and was the Summer of Love. The eclectic trio’s paths would intertwine every so often over the next three years, mostly limited to garage jams and the occasional recording project, but by the late summer of 2016, conditions were prime for a serious endeavor to come to fruition between the three.

The first release, The Madonna Tapes EP, found Will and Colin exercising their recording capabilities and exploring the potential sound between the two. Featuring Colin on drums and Will on guitar, the mix was well-received from the northeastern Japanese alternative rock scene and the local alley cats, but failed to chart here in the US. Looking to round out the sound, Ryan joined on bass and soon the trio were hard at work building a setlist that would exemplify what means the most to us: having a good time.

Our second EP, Stand Your Ground, was recorded in a small shrimp shack inside of a large taqueria in Taiwan in January 2017. Featuring rock´n´roll, blues, and latin vibes, it made us enough money to travel back to California, where we have been playing shows at every opportunity since. Thanks to all the shows we were lucky enough to record in the fabled SaucePot Studios, and release a third, sun-drenched EP just in time for summer! "Brighter Days" EP deals with California love, growing up, and beers on the beach. Blending alternative rock, reggae, and indie pop, it´s our first ever studio EP, and marks the continued exploration of our sound. Read all about it on Mustang News or listen to it below!
