“To me, ‘Upgrade’ is the ultimate heart break song but with a dark twist. It’s about that moment when you realize that someone has complete power over you and no matter what they do you can’t help but to crawl right back. Sometimes all you can do is find the beauty and humor within the destruction,” states Twin XL front man Cameron Walker.
DREAMERS front man, Nick Wold, adds, “Not everyone’s love life is a perfect Hallmark card, so this Valentine’s Day season, me and the brothers Twin XL are dropping a breakup song. It’s called ‘UPGRADE,‘ and it’s dedicated to everyone who’s ever been unhappy in love. Love on, friends.”
“Upgrade” follows the release of the band’s recent radio single, “Slow Heart”, which was included in the latest NOW THAT’S WHAT I CALL MUSIC!, VOL. 78 compilation among artists such as Olivia Rodrigo, Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, The Weeknd. Stream and purchase “Slow Heart”, which premiered this past March on SiriusXM’s Alt Nation show Advanced Placement and was also featured on Spotify’s “The New ALT” playlist and Apple Music’s “New in Alternative” and “Breaking Alternative” playlists.
“Slow Heart” follows the release of “Lemonade”, “Problematic”, “Melt” and most recently “Lonely”, a collaboration track featuring Little Hurt and Rad Horror.
The hypnotic hybrid of Los Angeles-based alt-pop band TWIN XL had its breakout in 2019 with the release of their critically acclaimed debut EP How To Talk To Strangers featuring the catchy hit single “Good,” which peaked at #19 at alternative radio and spent 5 weeks on Billboard’s Top Alternative Songs Chart peaking at #24. Described by NYLON as “very, very good,” and by MTV News as “a Certified Bop™,” the single peaked at #1 on Spotify’s top alternative music playlist The New Alt and was featured on Out Now. Along the way, the band has toured alongside the likes of The Fitz and the Tantrums, lovelytheband, The Maine, The Mowgli’s, Jukebox The Ghost, and IDon’t Know How But They Found Me and scored high-profile syncs on FOX’s The Resident, Hulu’s Light As A Feather, and MTV’s Ex On The Beach, to name a few.
