Enigmatic electro-rocker updog has delivered on his promise with a major debut EP called balloon boy, out via YouTube legends CloudKid.
The artist’s final single, never growing up, is the pinnacle of his sound with anthemic guitar shredding and trap-influenced synthesizers balancing each other in style.
Updog explains, “Balloon boy is a journey following all the trials and tribulations you go through when you’re in the process of becoming an adult and reaching a point in life where you suddenly realize you have lost your real self.”
“We all go through crippling insecurities, addiction, loss of friends, giving up our passions to pursue corporate careers, toxic relationships, etcetera, and eventually you probably won’t like what you see in the mirror.”
