The track titled Purple lights is the strongest of the seven tracks on Uppbeats debut EP ‘Enter Aquarius’ that currently sits at over 70,000 streams on Spotify from worldwide users of the music platform. The video features imagery from various locations in Dublin shot by Nathan Sheridan and directed by Finn Costelloe. The video also features a Rolls-Royce, dancers and of course, plenty of purple lights with outfits styled by Tobi Balogun of Self-Made Clothing. ‘Purple Lights’ is a unique song with an earworm melody that takes you on a journey through the mind of the artist dealing with a difficult relationship questioning his partner but also himself.
An experimental and ambitious rap artist from the West of Ireland, Uppbeat captivates audiences with raw lyrics depicting the social issues of our time. Every live performance is imbued with an immense amount of passion and energy.
His debut single ‘Embers’ set the tone for his successive releases, one of which includes Tsunami, that has reached over 100,000 listens on Spotify and was described as an “underground hit” by Shane McAuley of Soul Doubt Magazine. Uppbeat’s visuals have been previously described as ”Ambitious, Cinematic and Zany” by District Magazine.
With a growing online fanbase spanning the world, Uppbeat is certainly a rising star in the global music scene.
You can see Uppbeat this Thursday, the 1st of August at 7.30pm as he headlines a live show in Whelans on Wexford Street, Dublin City Centre. Tickets available from Eventbrite.
