Pop trailblazer UPSAHL has released her latest single ‘Antsy’ and announces a new EP timed to Sagittarius season, which promises to provide an introspective glimpse into her fiery persona and pay homage to her star sign.
The new music arrives as UPSAHL also confirms a major headline tour for this Winter – dates below.
‘Antsy’ is a departure from UPSAHL’s usual punchy, punk-inspired sound. The smooth, acoustic track encapsulates serious fire sign energy and offers listeners an unusual look at the frenzied thoughts, worries, and fears hidden beneath the surface. “The world is on fire I’m so fucking tired and equally wired,” she sings, setting all preconceived notions of herself ablaze.
“Antsy is a song for anyone who feels like they want to make a change in their life, but don’t know how to,” UPSAHL says of the single, “It’s that moment when you realize you’ve had enough of whatever bad stuff has been going on and you need to switch it up and start fresh. It could literally be anything from relationships to health to the internet to school to work, etc. Whatever it is that makes you antsy, we’ve all been there.”
UPSAHL’s newest track comes just in time for her highly anticipated headline UK tour in November where dates are already selling out. She will kick things off at The Deaf Institute Manchester on 18th November, and will perform across Glasgow, Leeds, Bristol, Birmingham before rounding off the tour with a huge headline performance at Heaven, London on 24th November.

UPSAHL collaborated with Anne-Marie and Little Mix and co-wrote “Kiss My (Uh Oh)” a Top 10 single in the UK.
