The latest solo project from Wollongong vocalist/musician/producer Max Pasalic, UNFD welcomes Up Late to the roster as of September 2020.
After launching with an entry into triple J Unearthed’s DIY Supergroup competition in May, Up Late immediately shot up the Unearthed charts and scored an honourable mention for their entry among 900+ others. Shortly after the release of follow up singles ‘FRIENDS’ and ‘u left me on read’, the project was named one of the “ten most exciting discoveries of 2020” by triple j and featured as one of the few artists in Unearthed’s “five-star club”.
Pasalic — who has credits as the lead singer of previous UNFD act After Touch and hip-hop production for the likes of BONES — draws on a plethora of influences to forge a new, genre-less sound as Up Late.
Offering an infectious blend of emo rock, pop, rap and hip-hop, Up Late flirts between everything from infectious vocal melodies to floor-shaking bass tones, proudly sharing tonal qualities with artists like Post Malone and Nothing, Nowhere and sonics from album’s like Kanye‘s Yeezus or Bring Me The Horizon‘s That’s The Spirit.Up Late’s introspective next single ‘Alone’ is out Friday October 2.
